Not all the Americans are warmongers.

I have heard about the protest at som eof the American cities, against the war.

I looked in the internet and found some pictures of those protests.






Washington DC

"On Saturday, a Not in Our Name contingent made up of folks from across the country joined the sea of people that staged the largest protest yet in Washington DC against the unjust war and occupation of Iraq. Over a quarter of a million people marched by the White House gates."
" Thousands of Puget Sound anti-war activists marched down the streets of Seattle on Saturday, September 24th, demanding an end to the war in Iraq."



California

In San Francisco, Not in Our Name Bay Area marched along with tens of thousands in a youth-led funeral procession which included dozens of musicians, a dozen coffins draped in black to represent the thousands killed by the blatant aggression and neglect of the Bush Administration, and non-stop lively chants. Die-ins were staged along the route -- that, along with the coffins, made compelling visual representations of the human costs of the policies of the Bush Regime."

Colorado

"Two thousand people gathered in at the state capitol in Denver to demand "Get US Out Now!" The rally and march through downtown was organized by the recently formed 3 November Movement.

Not in Our Name national staff person Jeff Paterson spoke of his resistance to the first Gulf War as an active duty Marine, about those within the military who are objecting today to an unjust war, and the tactics that military recruiters are using to enlist the 200,000 troops needed yearly to sustain the war machine -- while not taking care of the veterans of this or past wars.

Local featured speakers included State Representative Morgan Carroll, union organizer Scott Silber, Mark Turner of Ripples Cross, high school students, Hashim Malik of Bay of Muslim American Society's Freedom Foundation, Vietnam Veteran Mike Collins, Mike Miles, and Nita Gonzales of Escuela Tlatelolco -- with musican David Rovics."

Hawai'i

"More than 350 people - ages 1 to 87 - stepped into Honolulu's streets on Saturday to march against the war. The march, organized by Not in Our Name-Hawai`i, was joined by groups from labor, churches, the Democratic Party, World Can't Wait and more. There were pacifists, Hawaiian independence activists, communists, high school and college youth, Iraq war veterans, military families, active duty military personnel, business people and college professors. We missed a lot of the faces we usually see at the marches, but were really happy to see that many people who had not come out before had joined us."



"Friday, September 23, Not in Our Name joined the People Power Can End the War Collective for a direct action at the downtown Oakland Armed Forces Recruiting Station."





More pictures are still waiting to be published.

You are right of course.Not all Americans believe we did the right thing when we removed Saddam from power.They would have us bring our troops home now and let your new democracy stand or fall on its own.They say we had no business shedding one drop of American blood or spending one American dollar to give some foreign country their freedom.We will remove our troops when the democratically elected government asks us to or when your army is fully capable.Until then we will continue to protect the Iraqi people to the best of our abilities.When our soldiers are gone and you are sitting in a free peacefull,prosperous,Iraq,enjoying your freedom and security hopefully your opinion of the Americans who thought it was worth the blood of our troops and the many billions of dollars will have changed.

This war was a foolish and horrible crime. It makes me ashamed to be an American.

Truth Teller: I can see you are becoming disheartened by the ignorant responses to your efforts to tell of your experiences and the story of your city.
Please believe that there are MANY in the U.S. who read something other than mainstream media and therefore know that our president has proceeded on lies and is responsible for millions of crimes in Iraq.
Unfortunately we are in the minority or that man would not be president.
Thanks for continuing to blog despite your disappointments.
