Oakland Peace Rally
Thursday, March 20, 2003

The first day after the U.S. attack on Iraq, we skipped work and headed out to participate in the peace rallies. Our first stop was Frank Ogawa Plaza in downtown Oakland. This was a rally composed of hundreds of students from various schools across Oakland and a smattering of older folks. We were there at the start of the rally and at its peak and the young people behaved admirably throughout. Its difficult to convey how inspiring it was to see both the old and the young and everyone in between voicing their opposition for the war, urging peace and justice, and standing proudly, bravely, and peacefully for what they believe in. Bravo, Oakland.
