I was there. Hundreds, if not thousands, gathered in Pritchard Park in downtown Asheville, NC. There trees were full of people, as was every bench, table, rock, sidewalk, and brick wall around the park. The people spilled into the streets.
I was my first major protest and a couple of years later, I was helping to organize and run the protests. I am still active with Veterans for Peace, Code Pink, and other peace groups.
I am proud to have stand with all the people in all the protests that I have been to. I know we are on the side of justice and truth.
