There are demonstrations
taking place all over the United States today, and the main one in Washington is reported by the Washington Post to be attracting up to 100,000 people
. The WaPo is undoubtedly playing down the numbers, relying as it does on nebulous "authorities". Active duty troops
are said to be taking part. It's also somewhat cheering to note that hate figures of the American Right such as Susan Sarandon, Danny Glover, Tim Robbins and Jesse Jackson are going to be there. The Victoria Times Colonist, of all papers, reports that one of the slogans is Hip Hop Not War
. Well, it's about time someone said that.
