According to Channel 9 & KPFK updates...
From the looks of things, there is an amazing protest still going on on the west-side. Hundreds, if not thousands, once again descended on the intersection of Wilshire and Veteran this evening to protest Bush's massacre of the people of Iraq.
Channel 9 showed an amazing image of a flag-burning protest -- the demonstrator had the courage to burn the flag and hold it out to the legions of riot pigs who were occupying the intersection at the time.
Apparently, a large group of the demonstrators eventually decide to march. And while some remained at the Federal Building, many moved south and west -- ending up on Santa Monica Blvd. in West LA near the Nuart Theater (I think they said the cross street is Purdue), where the porkers finally blocked the demonstrators' progress and it seemed from the TV that arrests were about to happen. I hope not. These protesters ROCK! Great job; hope you get out of the jam and can create more disruption.
These are truly heroic people. They shut down Wilshire again tonight; and by the looks of things on TV they suceeded in shutting down Santa Monica Blvd. too!!!
You are heroes!!!!!
