On August 6th 1945 the United States government deliberately used nuclear weapons against innocent civilians. It is thought that close to 70,000 people perished instantly in the nuclear explosion over the city of Hiroshima, with that number approaching 200,000 in the following days and weeks from radiation poisoning. Three days later another bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki resulting in an estimated 120,000 deaths. All totaled the United States government had killed close to 320,000 people in the space of three days.

This coming weekend, people around the world are coming together to remember the atrocity of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and to call attention to the dangerous hypocrisy of the current US policy on nuclear weapons.

Joined by community-based activists to mark the one year anniversary of the US backed coup and occupation of Haiti, Congresswoman Maxine Waters spoke at a Press Conference to express her concerns and outrage at the continued human rights abuses in Haiti and to demand the return of democracy to Haiti.

Report: Urgent Haiti Action by Women of Color in the Global Women's Strike





LOS ANGELES, November 9, 2004 - At 7:50 PM, What were first reported to be tanks and now identified as Marine APCs showed up at an anti-war protest in front of the federal building in Westwood.

The APCs circled the block twice, the second time parking themselves in the street and directly in front of the area where most of the protesters were gathered.

Enraged, some of the people attempted to block the APCs, but police quickly cleared the street. The people continued to protest the presence of the Marines, but after about ten minutes they drove off. It is still unclear as to why they were deployed to this location.

LOS ANGELES - Saturday, November 7, 2004, About 1,500 people met at Hollywood and Highland and marched to the recruiting station at Sunset and LaBrea to protest the occupation of Iraq and the stolen election. About 500 people entered the parking lot of the Army recruiting center in a mini-mall at LaBrea and Sunset. Police seemed somewhat unprepared but recovered after about 15 minutes and inserted themselves between the protestors and the recruiting center. After reinforcements arrived, they then proceeded to sweep across the lot, driving everyone out the LaBrea exit and into the main mass of demonstrators. Reportedly four arrests were made by the LAPD.

Two million people turned out around the world to protest the occupation of Iraq. In LA, an estimated 15,000 people took to the streets. As one marcher noted, there was less of a mass media effort made to promote this demonstration, but a healthy number of dedicated people turned out, demonstrating real resistance to US policy. Even with an uncoordinated decentralized promotional effort, masses of hard-core anti-war protesters turned out.

Allegations that cops infiltrated black block, made fake arrests to incite violence.
Another similar allegation, with comments.

This demonstration is undoubtedly the most photographed in Los Angeles history. Every third person seemed to have a digital camera (and most double as video cameras).
