Anti-Israel protest week 10

Seattle's Westlake Center anti-Israel protest is now in its 10th week. The one anti-war groups that had the regular vigils there (the war resisters) returned. Turns out they only come on the 4th Saturday that leaves the Women in Black and the old general weekly peace meditation. The old weekly meeting may have been quit on a while back since I can no longer find any reference to it. Last time I saw it was about a year ago.

I set up as I normally do on the others side of the street, it only took seconds for them to come and invade my space. They even put a sandwich board up right next to me.

The last two guys are with the war resisters.

Daniel had the day off so he was able to join me with his very tall collection of many flags.

Most time when I want to take pictures from their side of the street I will put away my signs and flag, but not this time. In fact if you think about it by moving to their side I help them by not making that long dangerous walk across the street, Daniel and I spent the rest of the day here.

The kids did their little march down to Pike Place Market and back.
