This past Saturday I participated in the largest anti-war protest since Vietnam. I was in school in Boston during Vietnam and I remember the Student Strike after the Kent State Massacre. That protest was huge but it was dwarfed in the shadow of the protest last Saturday in Washington D.C. A magor event took place in America on September 24, 2005, but the mainstream media was either too concerned with a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico or that was used by the right wing propaganda machine to cover up the hurricane decending on Washington D.C. I watched taped continual news broadcasts on CNN and local stations...I don't have cable, there was nothing about the protest in Washington. National newspapers like U.S.A.Today and others buried the story in the third from the last page. I was right up front to take pictures of Cindy Sheehan and the sea of people spreading to the horizon all around her supporting the end of this immoral war. The message that this news blackout sends to me is that we are living in a truly fascist state.
