Anti-War Parade

I was leaving my apartment to go to my grandfather’s house when all I see are police all around the area where I stay. I stand watching police helicopters, horses, motorbikes, vans everywhere! Then all of a sudden I hear the noise, the drums, the singing, the shouting. I instantly grab my camera and start shooting what I saw around me….

An Anti-War parade to mark the 5th Anniversary of the Iraq War and to demand the withdrawl of troops from Iraq and Afganistan, freedom for Palestine and Lebanon as well as protesting that George Bush is the World’s #1 Terrorist. It was very surreal watching it especially seeing young and old, people from different faiths and backgrounds all coming together to support this cause.
