Just wanted to point out that these are substantial protests.Over 1 thousand arrested in San Francisco.

Thousands of anti-war protesters have taken to the streets of Britain to show their opposition to the use of military action against Iraq.
More than 5,000 young people brought central London to a standstill on what campaigners have branded a "day of shame".

(AP) -- Galvanized by the American attack on Iraq, anti-war activists around the country set off their own barrage of street protests, chaining themselves together, blocking workers and traffic, walking out of classes, and parading in mock chemical suits. Hundreds were arrested from San Francisco to Washington, D.C

"Smaller splinter groups broke windows, heaved debris into streets and occasionally scuffled with police. Some protesters hurled rocks at trains, briefly halting service at a station in nearby Oakland. "

"In Brighton, police had to use CS sprays after a dozen protesters forced their way into the town hall. "

"Anti-war activists in Philadelphia blocked entrances to the downtown federal building, forcing police to detour motorists away from the area. Police arrested 107 protesters."


How ironic that people gather together to call for peace are turning pretty violent. Look at the picture in the first link, a cop with blood all over him. I saw some of the footage from the SanFran protest, people were fighting and kicking cars. Make up your mind, do you want peace or not? Anyone else find this ironic???
