Highly effective protest takes place
The Chron has more:
Word of the protests has largely spread through the Internet -- including a social gathering spot on MySpace -- as part of a push to recruit younger people. In the Bay Area, the group has distributed flyers at some high schools, telling students to "stay in school if you like Bush."Normally, I'd laugh at how stupid the idea that a bunch of standing around and whining that everyone will ignore is more useful than something else, but when that something else is California schooling...
The push appeared to work: A significant portion of marchers were young, many of them in high school.
Jessica Cussins, a senior at Berkeley High, said she had ditched school to attend the event.
"I felt that this was more useful," said Cussins, 17. "I wanted to be a part of it. I think what we're doing (in Iraq) is wrong."
"I just want the children to know that some of the elders are with them, and that we're very happy they are speaking out and saving their own lives by resisting the Bush regime," she said.Wow. I can't wait to see the evidence that this protest saved the life of one of the protesters.
So many meanings to the sign. I mean the "THE MOVEMENT IS IN MY PANTS" sign. Is this just a reminder that the dudes are here to pick up chicks?
If only these people screamed louder, Bush would be gone. Thanks a lot for your puny voice.
