Tacoma march and rally a huge success
Yesterday's march and rally, entitled "Enough is Enough", highlighted the overwhelming cost that this war has had on our local community. Unfortunately, I missed the first part, with all the major speeches, so I'd love it if someone would send me in an update. Also, I'm waiting to get my photos developed (I know, I'm still in the 17th century here) so if anyone has photos they'd like to share, hook me up.
This protest is going to go on! There are events today and tomorrow in Seattle, as well as events in Olympia this Tuesday and next Saturday. Please get on the streets. It's the only way we're going to save this country.

P.S. Although the Tribune actually covered this one, it wasn't the greatest article, as usual. But something is definitely better than nothing. Why not email the author of this piece and let him know you'd like to see more of this sort of coverage, with more information about the organizers and their message.
