    Thirty five years ago, on October 21, 1967, 70,000 demonstrators came to
    Washington, D.C. to "Confront the War Makers". Some tried to "Levitate
    the Pentagon" in hopes that would make the war in Vietnam go away.
    This march marked the transformation of the anti-War movement from
    protest to resistance.

    As we contemplate the probable beginning of another war, we should
    remind ourselves of all the demonstrations required to end the last one,
    all the people who died while we were trying to do so.

    To commemorate the event, I've posted a set of photos on the the
    Pentagon march at http://www.jofreeman.com/photos/Pentagon67.html

    Please pass this on to anyone who might be interested.
