A Protest Against the War

Introduction – Part 1 – Part 2 – Movies


While attending the April 12, 2003 anti-war protest, I took a lot of movies. Perhaps even more so than the pictures, the movies really captured the atmosphere of the protest due to their being an audio-visual medium instead of only visual. Most of these movies tie in with specific points in the rest of the photo set, and I think that those connections are readily apparent. These movies are presented in the order in which they were taken. Those clips that are audio-only are in MP3 format, and the picture associated with those is clickable. So let’s see the protesters in action…

A rap song about the political situation…

“And as our movement becomes clear…”

Protesters mill about at Freedom Plaza…

“Occupation is a crime…”

“Whose streets? Our streets!”

“Ain’t no power like the power of the people, cause the power of the people don’t stop!”

“Hey, Bush, we know you! Your daddy was a killer, too!”

I scored an interview with one of the black bloc protesters! These questions were right off the top of my head, by the way.

The march continues near the White House, as a chopper is heard flying above.

The sound truck passes by…

The protesters arrive, shouting, “No blood for oil!”

Protesters march by to the chant of “George Bush, what do you say? Regime change in the USA!”

Soon after the black bloc passed through, the police decided to bust a move and converge on someone or something. I don’t know what caused the action or what the action was targeted against. I was facing the other way when it started, photographing something else. Protesters yelled out, “Shame! Shame! Shame!” as the police did their thing.

Police shuffle around on motorcycles, and a small exploding sound is heard, later determined to be coming from one of the motorcycles.

Protesters continue marching along 18th Street, as the sound truck begins another chant.

“The people, united, will never be defeated!”
