Antiwar March Makes Its Way Through Downtown

If you're Downtown this afternoon, you way well have already realized that the antiwar protest march just made its way through. I was sitting in my apartment and heard them making their way down Broadway, so I figured I might as well go out and grab a few pictures.

The march seemed decently attended. I caught the front making the turn onto 4th and came to the end around 7th. So I'd say maybe four blocks worth of people, not all to dense at times.

One thing I always love is the random side-protests that get attached to marches like this. For instance, the nurses' association was chanting "Stop Arnold. Stop the War." I saw several random "Free Palestine" signs. And as always the Bus Riders Union showed up.

I didn't notice until I was uploading the pictures, but I'm pretty sure the guy in the pictured photo for this post is giving me a Fight On! in response to my USC t-shirt. Less than two hours until game time...
