3/19/03 Westwood Demonstration Pictures

by Demonstrator Friday, Mar. 21, 2003 at 12:36 AM

Account with Pictures of Antiwar Demonstration at Westwood Federal Building March 19, 2003.

3/19/03 Westwood Dem...
apocalypsenotatfederalbuilding.jpg, image/jpeg, 1224x1632

Antiwar demonstrations were continuous at the Westwood Federal building throughout the entire day! The first demonstration started at 10 am with a student protest, followed by another protest at starting at noon involving a march to an induction center at Wilshire and San Vicente and back, followed by yet another demonstration at 5pm. People are still out there NOW at 10:30 pm.

These pictures cover the demonstration that started at 12 noon and merged with the one at 5pm.

We started at the Federal Building and marched West along Wilshire to San Vicente. There we had a rally and a die-in in the middle of Wilshire Blvd. We then headed back along Wilshire toward the Federal Building. Police tailed us on motorcycles and ran their sirens at their loudest level for no apparent reason when we went under the 405 overpass, in an evident attempt to hurt our ears. They then gunned their cycles aggressively down the center divider, bumping in to a few people but not causing any injuries.

We passed the Federal Building and headed toward Westwood. I'm told that the march had a permit to go to Dianne Feinstein's Westwood office but the police formed a line along Wilshire and stabbed people at the front of the march with their batons, stopping the march.

People then milled around and a core group of about 50 or so sat down in the street. After about 45 minutes the police brought in a bus and arrested a bunch of people.

Some of us went around the police and got to Westwood and Wilshire to create a presence there and make motorists notice the demonstration that was occurring behind a police line down the street.

After an hour or so we went back to the Federal Building where a large crowd had already gathered for the 5pm demonstration.

The bombing has started so see you at 5pm tomorrow (Thursday) at the Westwood Federal Building, at the intersection of Wilshire and Veteran.
