For the past four years, Humboldt County has turned out in mass for what has become an annual event; the protest of U.S. aggression in Iraq and the Bush administration that has orchestrated this aggression. This year, as in the past, several thousand marched.

There is more at the Communities For Peace web site including video. (Video links on main page below thumbnails top center of page) Estimates of the body count range from a low of 3,000 to a high of 5,000 people.

One thing is certain; our turnout has remained consistant while other venues have decreased drastically since the first one in 2003 and we are bewildered by this. My own personal feeling is that many more were driven into the streets in response to a criminal media blackout on dissent in the period leading up to this grossly immoral and illegal invasion of a defenseless and already battered people. That is always the favorite target of bullies, whether it be homeless people, disabled people small unarmed countries or consumers. They do this not only for criminal gain but in a vain effort to compensate for the fact that they cannot actually defend us even from a few guys with box cutters.
