Stryker protestors meet at Thorne and 11th
The protestors at the Port of Tacoma met today from 4 to 7 PM, enjoying what they called an arts vigil, designed to give families and community members a chance to send a message of care and concern to soliders in the 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division set to be deployed to Iraq next month. Above is a shot from the same spot, taken last night by Olympia native, Robert Whitlock.
I hear that the ship is almost loaded, and soon will be away, carrying its deadly cargo to the US Colony of Iraq.
