Going video wild... AIPAC and Marijuana

I forgot how addicted I was to making protest videos til I started on the last two events I attended, in late May and July 4th. I ended up with five! All at Youtube.com/CarolMoore.

AIPAC protest wise (see earlier post), it was great to see mainstream peace groups support protests against Israel lobby groups, as I've been promoting for years, having organized a half dozen such protests 2005-2007. (I missed a similar, smaller protest by them last year.) It was nice to let others do the work and just show up up with my camera - and "don't tread on me" flag.

*One set of video and one of photos of the big May 22 protest vs. the Israel lobby AIPAC national conference in Washington DC.

*One of the amusing introduction to Professors Walt and Mearsheimers' discussion of the Israel lobby at the May 21 Move Over AIPAC conference - plus a link to the full youtube talk which was excellent.

*One short video called "Jews in Conflict" which contrasts the humanitarian views of fundamentalist, liberal and leftist Jews to the hatred spewed by a right wing Israel supporter, as well as smug AIPAC delegates parading by.

Below is my collage of dramatic photos/video of the 42nd annual July 4th White House Smoke In. The cops harassed alleged smokers at first, but organizers and the crowd made it clear that they'd defend their first amendment rights. Plus lots of dramatic personal testimony. I got up and made my pitch for radical political decentralization and secession as the way to free the weed.
