Today’s protest and more

As promised, I’ve uploaded about 30 photos of today’s third annual protest on the anniversary of the Iraq War in Fayetteville, NC, home of Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base. I also posted a few remainders from Uruguay and Texas.

Me at the Museum (and former home) of Juan Zarillo, poet, patriarch, and national hero of Uruguay. The Rio de la Plata is in the background.

Radical cheerleaders!

Some clever signs (and a W costume).

The Cackalack Thunder Drom Corps are most excellent! We were near them at the big protect in DC on 9/24/05, and they kept our booties moving so that we hardly noticed that we had only “marched” 10 feet in 60 minutes.

  1. Sorry but I need to to correct you in two things;

    His name is Juan Zorrila and he is not from Uruguay he is from Argentina.

  2. Ruby,
    I admire your ability to keep moving and to keep tackling issues that are important to us all. Keep up the good work. It was nice meeting you in Austin. I believe that if WillR/etc. had not have had so much TexMex, and you would not have been craving it, we would have had a chance to get to know each other at dinner a little better. Oh well, maybe next time
