anti war protest 3-18-07

Here are some pictures I took at the anti-war protest last Sunday in Portland, Oregon. I have a whole set uploaded on my Flickr site in a set titled "Anti-War Rally."

All of the news outlets said there were approximately 10,000 people there, but I feel that there were many more then that; the streets were jammed with people and signs, funny bikes and costumes, flags and banners. The church bells tolled one time for every soldier who died; I can't remember not hearing the bells the whole time I was at the protest. I think the official numbers are up to 3,229 lives lost while occupying another country. I'm working on short movie of footage I took while at the march, and hopefully can upload that soon.
