On Friday, antiwar protesters at the Pentagon committed acts of nonviolent civil disobedience in a statement against American wars abroad and U.S. military support for oppressive foreign governments.
On Saturday, there were protests in New York City and Seattle against continued U.S. occupation of Iraq, as Secretary of Defense Robert Gates appears to be in discussion with the Iraqi government to make a deal for presence of U.S. soldiers in Iraq beyond the end of this year. Protests in Iraq against the U.S. occupation, organized by Mutazer Al-Zaidi, the man who threw a shoe at George W. Bush a few years ago, also began.
Those protests will continue today, in Iraq and in the United States. Here in the United States, protesters will meet at noon in Dolores Park, in San Francisco.
