March of the Coffins

This morning I've been browsing the coverage of yesterday's protest in NYC and enjoying the nonviolent but pointed and creative statements against Bush and his war. I read that the marchers stretched for 20 city blocks, or more than a mile. Despite the media's typical minimizing of the numbers, it seems clear there were at least 400,000 people marching. The silliest thing I read was that police were confiscating apples and oranges from people on the streets because they could be used as dangerous missiles! Here's a few of my favorite photos from the protest, including one of the very moving procession of flag-draped caskets representing troop deaths that moved solemnly down the march route. On several you can click on the photo for a larger version:

The world is watching, and Americans are speaking. Are Republicans - or Democrats - listening?
