Iraq Moratorium #7: Berkeley, CA

Photos from IM Day in Berkeley. It was a warm sunny day – much in contrast with xofferson’s blizzard experience.

That’s dedication!

The regular (and also very dedicated) group from the Strawberry Creek Lodge (a Senior residence) were out standing or sitting, on all 4 corners of a busy intersection in Berkeley. Some were there representing the Grey Panthers and of course, there is the Iraq Moratorium contingent (organized by our very own dharmasyd). Others have joined just from seeing us on the corner every month.  There seem to be more new people coming out each time.    



This is a Cal student at her first protest!  She seemed pretty excited to come out and hold a sign (that’s my sign, btw).

Peace bro!

 

 



Yes it is.

 

 



Right on Girlfriends!

  1. I’m sure that breaks all of the rules, but who cares?  Nice report.

  2. I’m going to steal some of these photos for the reports on the Iraq Moratorium website.  I assume you won’t sue.  Check it out to see what others did; reports are still coming in and will be for most of next week.

  3. …great photos, beautiful work.

      Big hugs and thanks.

    You are getting more people each time.  🙂  I know there was one where you were worried because the count seemed down.  Glad that was just an aboration.

    that being anti-war is not the same as being anti-Repub, although on some blogs it seems to be the same.

    If you ask me about hot-button issues, I’ll make those on the right happy 50% of the time and those on the left happy 50% of the time, for certain reasons.

    Americans have been sold, by the U.S. government and MSM, a bill of goods about the Iraqi mis-adventure.

    Distrust the U.S. government and the U.S. political process, and you’ll be correct more than half the time, IMO.

    And our weather seems to be right about in the middle of OTB & xoffersons’.

    Its a pretty intensive picture site, so dial up users beware:

    Most of the pictures I’m in are the third post down titled:

    WOW. JUST WOW.

    She broke it up into several posts so she could fit all of them in.  She still has to post the Sat. protest pics yet.

  4. this week when I can form some coherent words for a diary.

    i was lucky enough to be with OPOL and his son Daniel, Victory Coffee and her friend Ann, and Bikemom.

    we had a great day and marched with Veterans for Peace and the Winter Soldiers.
