OUT OF IRAQ NOW! FREEWAY BANNERS
by Angel
Friday Mar 18th, 2005 1:09 PM
On the eve of nationwide protests commemorating two years of war and occupation in Iraq, Not In Our Name activists met the morning commute with 50 ft. banners declaring OUT OF IRAQ NOW! NOT IN OUR NAME!

A dozen Not In Our Name activists displayed banners over Interstate 80, Freeway 580 and in front of the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland between 6:30 and 8:30 am today.
Police and highway patrol forced activists off a pedestrian overpass over 580 near Grand Avenue after one hour, claiming that though they were within their rights to hold a banner if it was not attached to the fence, that traffic was being slowed as a result of the action.
Activists at a pedestrian bridge over I-80 were able to remain on the bridge for a full 2 hours.
