Would you believe it’s been two years already?

September 25, 2007, 2:42 PM

Would you believe it? Two years! As of yesterday, it’s been two years since this…

Black bloc participants take a moment to stretch before the march.

And this…

The crowd at Dupont Circle became increasingly larger as time went by.

And this…

Arriving at the World Bank…

And when a horse did this…

Shortly before the black bloc headed in, one of the police officers’ horses took a moment to relieve itself in the street.
(Apologies to anyone who was reading this while having lunch)

Yeah, it’s been two years. Scary. I remember that this demonstration was a turning point for me, personally. It made me realize that the tide was turning on the public’s view of the war, considering the huge numbers out in opposition to the war. There were protests feeding in and out of other protests, and I saw protest signs that day literally from the moment I arrived at Vienna to the moment I left Vienna that night. And the city looked kind of rough after it, too, with all the paper scattered through the streets.

Still, two years… wow… I still can’t get over that. It still feels as if it were yesterday, getting all ready for a black bloc in Dupont Circle…

Web site: September 24 Protests, as seen on Schumin Web from back then...

Song: "Oh, say can you see, by the TV's blue light..." (beginning of a cheer)

Quote: And I still can't get over this photo, where the guy scooped up some of the horse feces with his poster! I still don't want to know what he ultimately did with it, though I'll bet it wasn't pretty...
