No Armageddon For Bush

After the speeches, a game of tug of war ensued.  This was a tug of war between the anti-war activists (in other words, the participants), and the warmongers (i.e. the people wearing the heads, and the person dressed as the devil).  An orange “pool noodle” served as the rope.  As expected, the anti-war activists won with flying colors.


 

 


When the exorcism began, the sound people fixed the sound to add an echo effect, and David Barrows began reading from his script that he was holding against the peace sign cross.

“…those cowardly complicit in the United States Congress cease perpetuating the war crimes of the Bush Administration…”
“Stop the war on Iran!  To oblivion with Bush’s Armageddon!”


“Take your warmongers, war criminals, and torturers, take them away from us…”

Following the exorcism, everyone lit incense, which had been distributed prior to the exorcism's starting.

After the incense, a few more people gave some short speeches, and Carol Moore sang Imagine by John Lennon, as well as the song We Shall Overcome.


“…it may not be his intention, but it’s the only possible outcome of starting a war with Iran…”

And that was the end of the event!  DAWN had a meeting in Lafayette Park following the event, while I headed on out.


After the event was over and I was preparing to leave, a number of people remained in front of the White House.

I left the park via 16th Street NW and then walked west on Eye Street past McPherson and Farragut Squares, stopping to shoot the file photo of the canopies for Night March.  From there, I went down into the Farragut West station, and took the Blue Line directly to Pentagon City, where I headed into the mall for a chance to cool off, relax, and most importantly, dictate notes into Big Mavica while the memories were still fresh, which greatly helped me when I was putting this set together.


I dictate some notes into the camera while the memory was still fresh, to aid putting this photo set together.  It’s so much easier to put little notes like this directly into the photographic record with Big Mavica than to doodle them down in my notepad.


And that was it!  This was quite an event, and it certainly made June 6, 2006, aka 6-6-6, a very memorable day.
