A large gathering stood in support of Lt. Watada on this day, February 5, 2007, the first day of his Court Martial for standing strong against an illegal and immoral war.
There was much music, strong and inspiring words from Iraq war veterans, their wives and parents, and a puppet theater criminal court trying Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Condi Rice for crimes against the people. Guilty of course, and led off in chains to the loud approval of the crowd.
From about 11:00 am until around 6:00 pm, people passed between the rally in a large field west of the freeway across freeway overpass itself and to the gate leading to Fort Lewis. All along this stretch of road were people from many cities and areas of the country, holding signs and protesting this outrage against our Democracy.
These are some visuals from the days events................
