A peaceful demonstration for peace

Tuesday, June 26, 2007, in front of the Illinois State Capitol Building, Springfield, Illinois.

A group of protesters showed up to send quiet encouragement to Congressmen Ray LaHood and John Shimkus to stop funding the highly controversial School of the Americas. Per Will Reynolds, the measure lost by six votes (Shimkus votes for abuse of human rights). Good for LaHood and my own rep, Phil Hare, for voting in favor of the amendment.

Sorry for the blur. It was really humid?
