Updates from this weekend's Iraq War protests
Here's an update from Northwest Media Action's own Pat Fletcher. She attended the March 19th Candlelight Vigil in Wright Park in Tacoma.
"The 8:00 p.m. candlelight vigil tonight at Wright Park was attended by about 100 people despite the blowing rain. Jazlan Grigsby was the MoveOn host. She read the names of the Washington State fatalities in the Iraq War, then some statements about some of them that were provided by their families. We sang "What the World Needs Now," led by one of the participants. Then others gave brief statements: lack of federal support for the wounded troops after they leave the high profile treatment facilities, lack of social service support at Madigan, and the real story of 9-11. We left about 8:40.
I didn't take pictures after all. My camera isn't immune to blowing rain. But there were two photographers there so Jazlan might have pictures."
