Bay Area anti-war protests Thursday against Bush’s escalation

If you haven`t heard the news Bush plans to announce on Wednesday to escalate US troop involvement by 20,000 in Iraq. I can`t say I`m very inspired about the anti-war movement in this country. While the general population has been moving more and more against the Iraq war, the anti-war movement seems to be going in the opposite direction– shrinking instead of growing. Would it be wishful thinking to hope for a large and defiant response to Bush’s State of the Union address? Probably, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

Anyways here’s some protests Thursday around the bay area:
