Video: Gathering of Eagles in DC
Age of Hooper was at the Gathering of Eagles demonstration, and filed this great video report.
The G of E organizers claim that at least 30,000 people attended the pro-America rally.
But this is how the Associated Press is reporting it: War protests grow in D.C., across US.
Police on horseback and foot separated the two groups of demonstrators, who shouted at each other from opposite sides of Constitution Avenue in view of the Lincoln Memorial before the anti-war group marched. Barriers also kept them apart.
But war protester Susanne Shine of Boone, N.C., found herself in a crowd of counterdemonstrators, and came out in tears, with her sign in shreds. “They ripped up my peace sign,” she said, after police escorted her, her husband and two adult daughters from the group. “It was really pretty scary for me.”
