Continuing with my photos, here comes highlights from the DC anti-war march itself on March 20 organized by ANSWER. To get up to speed on my two part photo essay on this event, click here for Part 1.

The rally in sunny Lafayette Park on Saturday the 20th ended around 2:00 PM and the first ranks of marchers, who had been steadily positioning themselves behind the rally crowd, now began to step out:

One stream of marchers passed by the White House. You can bet they noticed us.

I wonder if Obama was peeking out the window when this sign passed by, and if so, did that have anything to do with his showing some backbone, or so we are told, against Right-wing Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, who is attempting to pull off another fait accompli screwing the Palestinians out of more land, heritage and property, all because they are as paranoid of maintaining a pure "Jewish" State, whatever that means, as the Right-wing Afrikaners in South Africa were of maintaining White Boer Power forever.

I believe Obama did give "Bibi" an unpleasant time, judging from the way Israeli propaganda is now revving up against him.

The march's ad hoc rhythm section. They kept everything lively and the juices flowing.

One of the icons of the peace movement, the Raging Grannies. The know it in their bones that war is the enemy of all human progress, and is certainly not some kind of solution to Obama's Manichean mental construct of good versus evil, which simply demonizes those we are incapable of communicating with or even understanding, compounding all problems and slaughtering the innocent.

The march is headed for the offices of Halliburton, the Washington Post, the Mortgage Bankers Association, The National Endowment for Democracy and the US Department of Veterans Affairs, where symbolic coffins will be dropped off to drive home the point that one way or another, these entities have blood on their hands.

Some families and relatives marched with photos of their children slain or incapacitated in America's wars of choice. Many soldiers and marines kill themselves or become hopeless addicts trying to cope with emotional anguish. How do you get rid of a poker of rage and guilt burning a hole in your head other than with liquor or drugs when your commanders and military psychiatrists are largely in denial or lie about the nature of the war and are left bullsh*ting you that "War good, killing bad guys good, you should be happy! Ugghh! Take these pills, shape up and shut up."

The colorful "Bongha Washington: Koreans for Peace" drummers also kept the marchers pumped up and motivated. You can also watch them interacting with marchers in this video:



A Gary Cooper-like strong, silent moment.

Many ethnicities were marching, including a strong Latino presence.
