Green Party Activists at the San Francisco Anti-War Demonstration
by Robert B. Livingston (gruaudemais [at] yahoo.com)
Sunday Mar 19th, 2006 1:54 AM
Here are some personal impressions with a few snapshots of yesterday's anti-war demonstration in San Francisco.

San Francisco is a wonderful city: full of kind people who really care about building a better world. They should all be Greens!

A Few Photos From A Green Perspective.

The Green Party contingent was stoked: there was a lot of love for Todd Chretien, Peter Camejo, Forrest Hill and everyone else running against those who abet criminals that spread world mayhem with a war built on lies.
§Peter Camejo and Todd Chretien

Peter Camejo and Todd Chretien are two of the principle leaders of a movement called "A Million Votes for Peace". The principle focus of the movement is to strengthen the anti-war movement by creating a haven for it in the Green Party.
§Carol Brouillet

Carol is a Green party candidate running for Congress in California's 14th Congressional District. Read about her and her remarkable, almost single-handed struggle to draw local attention to unanswered questions about the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001:

After weeks of wind, cold, and rain (even snow!)-- the rally day was blessed with perfect weather.

§Forrest Hill is Running for California Secretary of State
by Robert B. Livingston (gruaudemais [at] yahoo.com) Sunday Mar 19th, 2006 1:54 AM

Forrest Hill believes "it is time we instituted a just electoral system to defend our freedom and reclaim our democratic rights. With your help, I believe we can institute Free and Fair elections in California and lead the nation down the path of true election reform."

§A woman that teaches at City College

Her button says "Fight the Cancer Industry"

I didn't ask her if she was a Green. She said that she teaches courses on women's health issues.
§The scene in front of City Hall
by Robert B. Livingston (gruaudemais [at] yahoo.com) Sunday Mar 19th, 2006 1:54 AM
in_front_of_city_hall.jpg
The smoke seems to be steam coming up from a grill in the street. Three years ago the park in front of City Hall was packed-- one couldn't hardly move. Although the rally had a strong crowd-- the atmosphere seemed much less urgent than in the past. Those present were clearly frustrated with the utter lack of current government leadership and the failure of the media to deal honestly with events that are more urgent than ever.
§A kind face in the crowd
by Robert B. Livingston (gruaudemais [at] yahoo.com) Sunday Mar 19th, 2006 1:54 AM

To me, this women's facial expression is the antithesis of that belonging to Dick Cheney: hers glows with honesty, warmth, and kindness; Cheney's expression looks unalive, cunning, and forced. Hers wants to contribute something to the world. His wants to take what he can get from it.
§Marching for peace

What would a San Francisco protest rally be without percussion?
§Peace Will Triumph
by Robert B. Livingston (gruaudemais [at] yahoo.com) Sunday Mar 19th, 2006 1:54 AM

Thr joy and fearlessness that comes from loving peace was everywhere evident in the crowd.
§Peter Miguel Camejo
by Robert B. Livingston (gruaudemais [at] yahoo.com) Sunday Mar 19th, 2006 1:54 AM

Peter Camejo ran with Ralph Nader in 2004 on a platform for Peace and against the war in Iraq.

He is now running for governor of California (against Arnold Schwarzenegger) as part of the Green coalition movement to build a Million Votes for Peace.

His website is http://www.votecamejo.com/index.html
§Another photo of Peter Camejo

Camejo was expelled from Berkeley years ago for protesting the Vietnam War-- the reason given: unauthorized use of a loudspeaker. Nearly 60,000 Americans and 2,000,000 Vietnamese lost their lives in Vietnam. In these not wholly disimilar times, isn't it time we listened to him?

§Todd Chretien and his daughter
by Robert B. Livingston (gruaudemais [at] yahoo.com) Sunday Mar 19th, 2006 1:54 AM
todd_chretien_and_daughter.jpg
Todd Chretien is a shy, soft spoken gentleman-- save when political issues call on him to stand up and be counted. Then he is a furious and staunch defender against all oppression: in another age he might have been a noble knight! He is running for the U.S. Senate against Dianne Feinstein.

His website is:

§Choosing the path less travelled

This man illustrates his opposition to the war in an oil producing country by choosing a way of life that is simple, logical, and ecologically sound.

The posters who criticize Peter Camejo don't know what they are talking about. Camejo believes the earth's health is the most important issue of all.

But he also believes that we must get our country back first if we are to institute reforms.

Think Peter Camejo REALLY cares about the environment? Everybody else is walking or on non-petrol burning wheels of transport - EXCEPT Peter Camejo who somehow thinks he should ride in a big car. EGO at the expense of all - that's Peter.

God bless his ego!

His is the type of ego that puts everything aside to stand up for everyone who dreams of a better world.
