Building a Tank for Peace

A quartet of young men were hastily assembling a wooden tank on McAllister Street Saturday morning for that afternoon's anti-war protest march.

Grandmothers Against The War had decided to meet at the entrance to the Main Library, where they were planning their next move over a trash can.

From most accounts, the march was a success on its own terms, particularly the huge and spectacular "die-in" at Market and Octavia Streets. I wasn't able to join in because I was onstage at the Opera House for a "Magic Flute for Families" performance during the afternoon (see the post above).
