Iraq Vets Street Theater Occupies Downtown SF
by Jeff Paterson, Courage to Resist (jeff [at] paterson.net)
Sunday Nov 30th, 2008 1:59 AM
IVAW (Iraq Veterans Against the War) performed "Operation First Casualty" throughout downtown San Francisco on Black Friday, interrupting shoppers' routines with a graphic display of the action that they were missing by not being in Iraq. Volunteer "civilians" were detained, cuffed and hooded by the Iraq vets in a graphic reenactment of the US military's occupation of Iraq. Several volunteers were water-boarded. Volunteers pretended to be Iraq citizens suffering under the occupation of U.S. forces.
