Despite threatening weather early, the skies cleared by
noon and the "anti-war" protest occurred under
sunny skies with temperature around 70 degrees. The
"anti-American" gathering was huge (about
3000-4000). About 40 groups, covering a wide range of
democrat, socialists, communist, environmentalist, and
“anti-GOP/Bush” groups sponsored the gathering. Despite
the high turnout, there was a group of twelve people (*)
who were not intimidated by the large
"anti-American" gathering. With the Freepers
positioning themselves at the park entrance, the
"anti-Americans" were required to march no more
than 4 or 5 abreast past our group to attend their rally.
Traffic was light in the area, but our signs were greeted by
the usual honks of encouragement.
