    A group of us protested the Iraq Occupation every Saturday for almost 3 years. Among the many signs was one I did every week of the current total number of fatalities. The number was stunning; every week it went up, sometimes by 20 or more. People noticed.

    We didn't stop the war, but we made sure our neighbors at least had some idea of the cost. Ultimately we lobbied City Hall to have our city officially come out against the Iraq debacle and declared ourselves a "City of Peace." I don't think that would have happened without such a powerful visual week after week.

    Whether kos wants to do something like this or not, it's worth tossing around ideas. (I would guess not, but really have no freakin' clue!) Perhaps a diary series similar to IGTNT. Either way, I agree that you're onto something.

    "The answer to violence is even more democracy. Even more humanity." Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg
