THE DEMOCRATS' MESSAGE (via Bryan Francoeur):

GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION RALLY, SAN FRANCISCO, MARCH 18, 2006 (Zombie Time)

[W]hen March 18 finally arrived, there was no one single big rally to unify everyone who was against the war and/or against the government. Inevitably, this fracturing of the movement caused all the various events to attract substantially lower attendance than in previous years, even when the number of attendees at all the March 18 events were added together. According to reasonable estimates, no more than 10,000 people showed up at the main ANSWER rally (a total that seems about right, according to my personal observation). The Anarchist Bookfair drew a few thousand throughout the day. And most of the suburban rallies drew a few hundred each, though a couple may have been in the low thousands.

There was no way one person could cover all the rallies, so I attended both San Francisco events.

This first photo essay covers the ANSWER "Global Day of Action" rally that started at San Francisco's Civic Center around noon. At the bottom of this page you will find a link to my report on the Anarchist Bookfair, which I visited later in the afternoon.


The GOP ought to run this as an ad with Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, John Murtha, Ted Kennedy, etc. intercut between the rest of the crowd.

Wow. We need a new name to describe the people in these pictures. They're way past the Kool-Aid drinkers.

Tiny numbers, actually. Keep it in mind: no draft, no so-called "anti-war movement": cowardice is no longer in service of treason.
