Smash And Pablo
Smash has the details and a has prottest details as well. you will need to check out both posts.
This one was from the day of his trial:
Pablo's Pity Party:
Last night was the grand kickoff for what was billed as “a week of protests” against Paredes’ cout martial, which began this morning. Thousands of flyers were printed and distributed to coffeehouses, campuses, and hippie hangouts around the greater San Diego area. Electronic notices were posted on the local Indymedia site, and other virtual hangouts frequented by local lefties. In the end, only about 150 people showed up – including the media, and a handful of Protest Warriors.And this one discusses the sentencing and the protest response.
Yes, I was there – and I recognized several of the usual suspects among the organizers of the event. But if they noticed my presence, they didn’t show it. My intentions were to observe quietly, record as much as possible, and ask questions if given the opportunity.
Pablo Gets Hard Labor
YESTERDAY AFTERNOON, I got word that a group of pro-Pablo demonstrators were gathering outside the main gate of Naval Station San Diego. So I got together a couple of my Protest Warrior buddies and set up an impromptu "Operation Thank You" on the opposite corner.These are both good posts.
As usual, we kept our message positive, with signs that read "Thank You Navy," and "Land of the Free, Thanks to the Brave." The Pablo protestors didn't know quite what to make of us.
