Once again, we bring reports of last month’s antiwar protests, accounts that the mainstream media have no interest in publishing. Our earlier reports can be found on the date posted: earlier today; March 31; March 27; March 25; March 24; and March 19. (March 19 witnessed many posts as we tried to follow demonstrations on both coasts as near as contemporaneously as possible. So, check out all posts from that famous day.) The chronicle continues:

GRAND JUNCTION, CO. Several hundred gathered at a rally on Sunday, March 30, with live music, and then the crowd proceeded on a march to a local war profiteer, Capco Inc.

MADISON, WI. Nearly a hundred people demonstrated at the Capitol Square, held a silent vigil and marched around the Square. Go here. After more bannering and other protests, 3 dozen protesters sat-in at Senator Herb Kohl’s office. Several were cited by police.
