If a photo is worth a thousand words, here are about 17,000 of them- give or take a few adverbs.


These are my photos from today's (Saturday, 10/28) protest on the State Capitol front steps with A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism).  It felt great  to get out in the cold and work for change!  

Below the cut are lots more photos and the poll!

Were there any other Minnesota Kossacks in attendance today?  Please share your photos and stories!  I was wearing a black hoodie, holding a huge blue and yellow banner listing the war's  statistics with my friend near the front.

Much love,

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
