I've written a little bit about the DC rally, but I wanted to mention the one in my hometown, that had our own very special guest speaker.

SJ Mercury News:

Clutching signs and raising their voices, thousands of people from the Bay Area and beyond rallied and marched in San Francisco on Saturday to pressure Congress to end the Iraq war and bring the troops home.

[..]"What is going on here, in Washington, D.C., and in this country cannot stop," Carolyn Ho told the crowd. "There is a momentum that is growing."

Ho's 28-year-old son, Lt. Ehren Watada of Hawaii, is being court-martialed for refusing to deploy to Iraq. He joined the military, she said, because he believed he was doing his duty, but he came to realize the war was begun "on a lie."

Ehren Watada's court martial is scheduled to start a week from tomorrow.
