Audio coverage of Troops out march and street occupation

On Sep 29th, the Troops Out now march took a far more militant tone than similar antiwar marches in the past. One speaker pointed out that Iraqi Resistance fighters have bought the political space for countries like Venezuala to free themselves with their blood!

Both speakers and chants connected the war in Iraq with the war on the poor and nonwhite from Iraq to New Orleans, from Palestine to Jena to right here in the neighborhoods of Occupiued Washington. "Free the Jena 6" stickers were everywhere, as outrage about that malicious prosecution continues to mushroom everywhere.

The march included the same student bloc(now larger) that stormed the military recruiters office on Friday the 28th of September. This group proceeded after the march to occupy Constitution Ave, cutting off traffic there for at least the rest of the afternoon.

Before this, marchers passed the Dept of Education, where Code pink covered up part of the "no child left behind" sign so it now read "EVERY child left behind!" Next, everyone went under the Dept of Labor roof overhand and get really, REALLY nosiy there, so every man,woman, and child in police custody could hear. Finally, the march went up Mass Ave, looped around the notorious headquartersw of ICE(425 I st) and returned to the Capitol, launching the occupation of the streets.

This is just the beginning-the longer Bush and his corporate masters continuye the global war on the poor, the nastier things are going to get. A speaker said of the Iraqi resistance "the're fighting, we're talking." Well, in Vietnam that state of affairs did not last forever, and things may be heating up now as well.

Bush says bring it on,so let's bring all we've got!
