NWNW protests


nwnw2_10-22-071.jpgProtestors took over Capitol Hill this morning, one of a number of actions in the last three days protesting the World Bank/IMF meetings here in DC, and in solidarity with No War, No Warming, an environmentalist peace action coalition. This morning’s protests, aside from disrupting Congress’s normal commute, were a fantatstic show of solidarity across issues and, as many have mentioned, an incredibly effective action in an era of passive protests.

Images from NWNW and Indymedia. Video of the Polar Bears here and here (and a Reuters write up here) as well as live blogging from the Democracy Cell Project, Common Dreams and DailyKos. Below are more traditional stories on the protest: looks like the action made it in to a bunch of mainstream pubs, including some frequently read by Hill staffers.
