Minutemen Outnumbered By Human Rights Activists At City Hall Protest

It looked to me like a 30% minuteman supporters turnout
And a 70% Human Rights turnout of supporters
Here are a few pictures
I went to show support and solidarity against the HATE protest

I am posting the minutemen signs as "news to those who were not there" but don't want to post these in a way to help spread their message

There is a 20 min video I took that I will post here on Indy Media by tomorrow morning at the latest.

It was a nice turnout of Human Right Supporters
The Seriously Pissed Off Grannies had a city Hall meeting on an un related issue of having TANKS on our city streets. When they came out of the front doors into the "protest zone" they were chanting and marching side by side. I didn't quite hear well what they were saying ...but I got it on film. When they came out with their march .....the energy ratcheted up and the minute men started getting louder to voice their (sic) message.

Those Grannies are everywhere.... (thank goodness)
Good Support and solidarity by lots of loving people for the Human Rights of all people.

I had a recording problem and the last 20 minutes I was there is all that was saved.
Here is a couple short conversations I filmed at the 'double protest'and are posted on google:

The part of the Grannies marching out the door into the crowd was "not" captured in my film.....(darn!)

This 19 min video is Bonnie Tinker from The Seriously Pissed Off Grannies and myself talking with two anti-immigrant supporters of The Minuteman out on the sidewalk by city hall.
