Iraq War's First Anniversary Demonstrations In Los Angeles, California

By Daryl Parsons darylparsons@websitecity.com
Staff Writer

Hollywood, CA. March 20, 2004: Tens of thousands of demonstrators turned out for the first anniversary anti-war protests in the center of the city of Hollywood, California. The march traveled about a 1.5 mile starting at Hollywood Boulevard and Vine and ending in front of the Kodak Theater at Highland and Hollywood.

Police presence was visible but appeared to take a back seat as demonstrators marched holding signs, wearing costumes, pushing parade sized floats, and holding up wall sized murals in order to express their voices in opposition to the war in Iraq.

At the front of the marching protestors in his signature wheelchair aparatus was war veteran Ron Kovic who later spoke at the end of the march ralley before thousands of cheering demonstrators.

The march started shortly after 12 noon, and peacefully ended a little after 4:30 p.m. in the evening. Performing artists played music and sang as demonstrators slowly subsided down city streets carrying what survived of their signs, voices and energy.

In order to better illustrate the event, photographer Michael Uribe has prepared the first fifty (50) photographs of hundreds he took during the event, and has graciously permitted them to be made available to you for free on this website for you to witness the historic events taking place this weekend not only in Hollywood, California, but in the rest of the nation, and around the globe.

Uribe, who focuses photographing public demonstrations, which have included the Elian Gonzalez, Election 2000, and Miami Circle protests over the years, uses a patented pericam system to gain a "higher" perspective of the events he literally covers.

If you would like to share your own photographs of this weekend's demonstration, you can upload them on WebsiteCity.com's forum area (((Click Here))).

For more information on reprints and purchase of watermark free copies of Uribe's photographs he can be contacted by e-mail at michaeluribe@websitecity.com or at info@michaeluribe.com.
