LPAC and MoveOn held Iraq war protest and vigils today, on the 5th anniversary of the Iraq war, in Louisville, Kentucky. The LPAC commemoration was in downtown Louisville and lasted from 10am until 5:30pm. The weather was wet and cold. I wasn't able to get much video because of the rain, but I did manage to get a few clips. It was really heart warming to see young folks attending the event, from different parts of Kentucky.
The MoveOn commemoration was held across the street from Senator Mitch McConnell's house at 7pm. This event didn't last as long but was very well organized.
I have been videotaping and taking photos of protest here in Kentucky for several years and I tell you from experience that the young people are getting more involved with each protest and my vocabulary isn't sufficient enough to explain how that warms my heart.
The local media covered both events along with local blogger Jacob Payne of Page One.
Special thanks to Judy Munro-Leighton, James McMillin and Johanna Camenisch, thank you Johanna for the pizza!
