Iraq Veterans Against the War Lead Thousands in Protest March to Democratic Convention
Protests against the Democratic National Convention continued Wednesday as members of Iraq Veterans Against the War led an unpermitted march to the Pepsi Center to call on Barack Obama to back an immediate US withdrawal from Iraq. The march began at a concert by the rock band Rage Against the Machine sponsored by IVAW and the Alliance for Real Democracy. Rick Rowley of Big Noise Films files a report from the streets.

Hi mudshark, thanks for the link. I added the Democracy Now coverage, too. If we want change, we have to get up off our butts and take it to the streets. Change doesn’t come from our politicians.

well, maybe not. guess they never really did get an answer from them anyway.
just listening to Malloy, breaking in on the acceptance speech, and if I heard correctly… it took Obama less than 12 hours to break his word to IVAW, but that’s no real surprise.
Stim’s video’s are great, aren’t they?
never fails to crack me up.
Colo-indy has some good stories and pics.
