Not In Our Name

Demonstrators Block Traffic During Anti-war Demonstration Shortly Before US Invasion of Iraq
North Broad Street

I don’t remember a lot about this protest except for the location and thinking that most of the participants were probably high school students due to the mid-afternoon hour. Confrontations with drivers were also unusual because police would ordinarily cut off traffic at a nearby intersection and I don’t know why this day was different but it added more energy.
