Protest of the week

The protesters have grown! This week there were about 8 standing along the protest fence. They had a new kid with them, a girl who looked to be about 11, holding a sign that said


The sign was almost as tall as she was. As I walked by, I heard them talking about the high Salvadoran population in DC, due to the secret government programs in the 80's aimed at overthrowing the progressive government there. Time to bring out the tinfoil hats, I guess.

I didn't get around to writing about last week, but there was one amusing part of the protest. The Stand up for peace sign was back, and sure enough, one of the protesters was sitting down next to it. I actually laughed out loud…
