Boston Ashcroft protests
cananian
This morning I, and twelve hundred others, went down to Faneuil hall to protest John Ashcroft's so-called "PATRIOT ACT". I'll put up pictures as soon as I get them off my camera. Meanwhile you can read a Boston Globe editorial, an article describing how the PATRIOT Act curtails online education, or an in-depth Washington Post story describing (among other things) the effect of the PATRIOT act on libraries, Boston legislators, and Oregon police officers. Boston indymedia has a detailed writeup and its own pictures of the Faneuil Hall event.

Faneuil Hall, as you may know, has a large statue of Samuel Adams standing out front. My favorite sign from the protest read, "If Sam Adams were alive, he'd be standing here with us," the protesters. *Exactly*.

I personally held a sign with too much text on it comparing this Hermann Goering quote (April 18, 1946), with this John Ashcroft quote (December 6, 2001).
