March 19 - A Day of Many Actions
Any war is too much.
With the vast majority of the US public opinion now in agreement with us there may be less need to "get the word out." But the war goes on. We must respond to this slaughter. Creativity was our greatest weapon. With lock downs, suits, animal costumes, bands, flags, die-ins, poetry, song, street theater, militant moments, mass gatherings, vigils and much more we showed our opposition.
My favorite moment was when I stopped by the info point at Sansom and Market. A very mainstream looking guy walked up, he wasn't with friends or any kind of a group nor did he have any anti-war messages on him. "What's going on?" he asked. He was given a little explanation of the different events, "...and some people will get arrested." He responded, "Yeah, thats what I came here for." I later saw him being taken away by the police at Montgomery and Market.
This woman was later corralled and arrested as she stood by supporting the first die-in on market street.
But all war is mass murder.

The sign says, "I'm Hella for Peace."
people supporting the die-in.
many people were in the street to die-in and be arrested. many friends and supporters stood around. Police suddenly charged and hit people with batons and flung them into the group to be arrested. it seemed quite uncalled for.
The man in the bike helmet was pushed by police into the die-in. He spoke out during this photo and moments later was thrown to the ground. But later he said he had a great time in jail with all of the others like Father Louis Vitalli.

This is the Free Palestine contingent, ready to go with others before the ally ended.
This was at the end of the ANSWER march, after the speakers finished but when people and bands were still in the street at Mission and 24th.
Police came and poured water on the fire.
