A Weekend Of Protest

On September 28, Washington DC was host to a gathering organized by the Mobilization for Global Justice expressing concern over IMF/World Bank proceedings and the threat of war with Iraq. While MGJ organizers gathered near the Washington monument, ACT-UP Philadelphia held a feeder march to protest AIDS policies.

The rally at the monument consisted of music and speakers, including Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader, and was followed by a permitted march to Farragut Square and direct action. Mainstream media representatives were out in numbers, and though Friday's protests had resulted in a number of legitimate journalists being summarily arrested without cause, press coverage of the weekend was as disappointing and skewed as we've learned to expect.

IMC reporter Howard Ehrlich adds comments and observations from some of the advanced-in-age-but-not-in-spirit protesters in The Gray Activists.
