SF Anti-War Rally

Peace Flags SF Anti-warI went to the SF Anti-War Rally this weekend in San Francisco. Besides being critical of the multi-issue nature of the event, I was impressed with the turnout and the atmosphere of activism.

I thought it was odd to have speakers rallying for a host of issues such as, Free Mumia, Workers Rights, Immigration Rights, Native American Oppression, Palestine Liberation, etc. I also thought it was odd that the Iraq War Veterans for Peace, the mothers of deceased Iraq soldiers, and Cindy Sheehan spoke last. That seems like poor planning to me. They were definitely the most vivid and compelling speakers of the day, and to put them on last when much of the crowd had dispersed was unfortunate.

I was glad to be at the rally and witness tens of thousands of people taking to the street to make their opinions heard. Yay for political activism!
