FULL REPORT BACK COMING SOON:
More than 200 people gathered in Austin in front of the Texas Capitol building and then marched several miles up and down Congress Avenue. The protest was against the ongoing occupation/war in Iraq and elsewhere. It was also seemed to be a reaction in disgust that George w. Bush was awarded a second term. The protest was part of a national day of action called for against the war and the concession to George Bush.
Around 40 people marched through downtown Baltimore to voice their opposition to the results of the election, to the fraudulent and undemocratic US electoral system, and, most generally, to any kind of electoral politics whatsoever.
With the partially dismantled scaffolding for Kerry’s election-night rally still dominating the steps of the library in Copley Square, Boston activists gathered there at 5:00 to vent their frustration with the outcome of the election and the state of the country in general. Although the intention was to gather in the park, the police immediately chased people away, telling them that needed to a permit, and directing them to the sidewalks across the street. Approximately 70 people gathered on the other three corners of Boylston and Dartmouth Streets. Police arrested one person, apparently because he was climbing the scaffolding left over from the Kerry rally. Many of the people I spoke to expressed their frustration with the results of the election. People also generally seemed uncertain about how the left should move forward. Nonetheless, people also clung fiercely to hope, with young one woman handing out daisies to symbolize this.
Wednesday evening, over one thousand angry Chicagoans gathered at Federal Plaza to protest Empire in a protest organized for the day after the elections to put forth the message that no matter who had been elected, the occupations of Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and Haiti would continue. The event, which is a part of the Week of Resistance that includes anti-BAFT demonstrations on Thursday and Friday, began with a permitted rally that included speakers and some performances by the Radical Cheerleaders.
Protesters in San Francisco rallied against the re-election of George W. Bush and the continuing war in Iraq in a Wednesday evening march along Market Street and through the Mission District.
About 2,000 people participated -- many carrying the same signs and shouting chants similar to those of the anti-war protesters that flooded the city in the spring of 2003. The main protest was peaceful but boisterous.
PORTLAND — Protesters wearing gas masks and hoisting cardboard peace signs took to the streets of Portland, chanting "Not our president, not our war.''
The demonstrators, who numbered about 200, were met by police in riot gear, who arrived on foot, on motorcycles, on bicycles and on horseback.

Parrhesia, why on earth is it good to see people out in the streets? You mean, its good that some people don't respect the democratic choice of their fellow citizens? And how would you feel about such protests if Kerry had won, and Republican supporters were out in the streets? Would you be as approving? Frankly, I think the refusal to accept the results of the election, to this extent, is irresponsible and fundamentally anti-democratic. Public policy cannot be decided by mob rule. This is the stuff of banana republics; the rest of the world expects better of the US.

I think its tragic that the Democrats are so upset at losing that they are willing to watch the country fall apart at the seams. I guess winning really is the only goal.
