By now you'd have to be living under an ant hill not to know who Lt. Watada is and what his stance is. It is important to keep his name in the limelight so that others can find the same support he has.
I urge you to go to couragetoresist.com so you can see the other names of the many who are counting on us to give them voices as well.
Lt. Watada is a leader in the Army. But now he is a leader of legions. His name is amongst many who have resisted. He is not the first... but I hope he'll be the last.

Part one... the turn out and signs.

This was the exact corner me and Marianne were on last time. By ourselves.
Portland Pooches for Peace! Make Tacos! Not War.

Of course there were some Counter-Protesters: There was only these few. They were right next to a man whose son was killed in Iraq who was showing his support for Watada.
She's hollering at us as we pass by. She called me a "fucking bitch".
Next journal... the Puppetistas! :)
