The following roundup of Independent Media Center reports on anti-war actions is taken from Indymedia U.S., a “joint effort run by volunteers from many of the autonomously organized Independent Media Centers located in the United States”:
Marking the 7th anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq, thousands of demonstrators took to the streets across the country. From Portland to Washington, D.C., to Chicago, anti-war activists called for the end of the occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In D.C., a number of arrests were reported during the demonstration. Corporate media, who focused on the “Tea Party” protests there against the Obama administration’s health care bill, largely ignored the much larger anti-war protests taking place across the country. Also in D.C., “Camp Out Now” on the lawn of the Washington Monument is facing an expected eviction Monday at Noon.
