Indymedia has a roundup of the anti-war protests that took place this weekend. It reports that the San Francisco protest was 200,000-350,000 strong. A friend of mine who attended, whose crowd estimate was "at least 150,000," reports that she was amazed by the crowd's diversity, by any measure. She even ran into members of her former church, a very conservative Catholic congregation. Her favorite sign of the day, from a football fan: "Raider nation, not raider of nations."
On the downside, Indymedia also reports: "Later in the afternoon, one thousand people joined a radical anti-capitalist breakaway march and militantly marched through the financial center smashing windows and graffitting the San Francisco Chronicle building, the British Consulate, CitiCorp, the Immigration & Naturalization Service building, Starbucks and Victoria's Secret.
