The Anti-War Movement on the March

Jon Ihle asks Can anyone recall when another 100 person protest received such prominent national coverage?

Well, it's probably the best effort mounted by the Irish anti-war movement so far this year. I was amused to see on an Indymedia.ie story this photo of the "Mary Kelly Support Group", which shows the people of Galway staying away in droves.

In their defense though, I think there may be another person hidden from view behind the Grim Reaper, although they may be one of the revolutionary vanguard themselves.
