Today at my school, a bunch of us gathered at a park near our school at 6:45 this morning, and walked to school in a single file line to protest the war. Once we arrived, we drew chalk outlines of our bodies in each parking space in the parking lot to represtent the number of American soldiers that have died. We then held hands and stood in silence as cars drove by.

Some of you may be interested in this, and some of you (probably most of you) won't car. Regardless, I thought I'd mention it and post some pictures of the event:

Palm Desert students march to protest war, gas prices

Staff Report • May 28, 2008

About 15 Palm Desert High School students marched before school this morning to protest the war in Iraq and gas prices.

The group started at Hovley Soccer Park, then marched down Cook Street to the high school.

The group wore yellow to symbolize change.

"We're fighting a war that's not our own," Palm Desert senior Lauren Herman said.

No, because my parents are now making me pay for all my gas, which sucks.
But we just wanted to make sure that everyone didn't think we were protesting the gas prices, even though they're ridiculous.

I'm pretty sure someone is going to call the desert sun and have them change it.

The kids in my school were always too pussy to protest, so I'd do it alone. Frequently these protests took the form of disrupting classes or assemblies by executing a rather painful front flip onto a teacher's desk or tackling a podium.

KatieLyn
05-28-2008, 04:54 PM
We had it planned to do a Walk Out, rather than a Walk In, where we all walked out of first period at 8:00 AM and walked off campus peacefully, walked down to the gas station (not so much having to do with gas prices, just a good location to walk to) circle, and then walk back. We had A LOT more than 15 kids willing to do it, but the principle said that any seniors who walked would get their graduation ceremony revoked, and any juniors, sophmores, or freshmen, would get suspended. I was still up for it, but only four other kids were, so we decided to plan something that didn't disrupt class and would have more than five kids participating.

It is 6 pm, i got home today, and im not sober, there is much to be said about my protesting abilities and ventures...Ill start with a religious experience that included no interaction with god whatsoever... I was lured into a mormon church with shiny lights and dangling keys by an apprentice I had as a youth (about 15), during what is supposedly called, something of the sort, "baring testimony day."People reveal how they truly feel about mormonism. I no little about the faith at the time and what I did know was supposedly false, key word was. The story is simple, I walked up to the podium after about ten people had gone or so and I preceded to inform them about how the great salamander god had indeed blessed my life and that I am working hard to spread the faith in hope that he will give me Saturn(including the rings and at least 2/3 of its moon's.) I was then yanked off stage and held until police arrived, I explained my situation and was served with a restraining order against that particular location, I was told I got "lucky" and could have been in A LOT OF TROUBLE... eh, not so much protesting as it is tomfoolery... If Aesop were alive he would inform you the moral of this story but he died along time ago so I get to tell you! No one likes mormon people so go ahead and fuck with them, because it is relatively easy to get away with, that is if you are in the mood to fuck with people.

You are my hero.

Oh, I have no problem with any of it. I just thought that statement was funny.

We had a similar issue at the highschool I went to for my last semester of high school (after I returned form Indonesia)... I walked out and lost "walking privileges," but that was because I didn't plan on going to graduation in the first place (why would I after spending one semester at a school). A few others went along with me as well, and it seemed a bigger sacrifice for them (although one still walked, so I'm curious as to whether the threat was empty).

That protest wasn't very rowdy though. I went to some shindigs when i lived in Indonesia during the krises ekonomik that were scary as hell. Very different situation from here. I participated in a couple demonstrations that ended up being hand cuffed in college, but i was never booked (because I didn't do anything "wrong").

I've become a little disillusioned with a lot of the protest scene. Part of it is pathetic apathy and frustration on my part, a good chunk of it is also that people turn every protest into a melting pot of causes... You go to a war protest and all the sudden someone is speaking about Darfur or Tibet and, even though I care about those issues, some sense of solidarity and focus would be great...

I staged my own personal protest in high school.

The school was under construction and the student's lot lost at least half our spaces. Meanwhile the teacher's area was always open but "unavailable." I was late to school one day and was pissed that I couldn't find a place to park and the security told me I couldn't park in the staff area. I chose to drive my '63 Bug into the middle of the student quad and leave it there.

I was suspended for a day. I spent it at the beach.

wgmrtarttzztexcckdlsupercalifragilisticexpialidoci ous is sort of right. What good is a protest that doesn't inconvenience someone?

conservative communities are exactly where protests need to be more aggressive. Mild half-assed protests do more harm than good because they sate rich people's consciences. It makes them think they DO give a damn and they're doing their part. That little act of civil obedience has their parents beaming with pride as they forget for a moment that they're about to vote for McCain and another 100 years of war. Then they can go back to doing nothing again knowing their commuminity has made a statement. Local politics are FAR more important than national politics. You have to piss off your neighbors if you want them reevaluate their ideas. Groundswells, by definition, don't happen from the top.


btw I'm not being hipocritical in any of this. I personally don't give a shit about anything. I help inner city basketball teams by buying Hershey bars at the entrance to Safeway. That's what I do.

You have to piss off your neighbors if you want them reevaluate their ideas. Groundswells, by definition, don't happen from the top.


btw I'm not being hipocritical in any of this. I personally don't give a shit about anything. I help inner city basketball teams by buying Hershey bars at the entrance to Safeway. That's what I do.

I agree that if protests want to get noticed by the community, they do need to be more aggressive. But (according to Katie) there were severe consequences if they skipped classes for it. When you're older, its ok to take those chances in my opinion. But not when you're young - especially with your education being threatened.

And younger people protesting is always good. Though its not very aggressive and it doesn't contain any real civil disobedience, it will still make a few people turn their heads because it can be quite a sight to see the younger generation taking some kind of stand for a cause, without being told by someone older to do so. I would like to see if they go any further during the summer, when school is not a factor.

But on that note, good job to Katie and her friends. I'm somewhat impressed.

I hate having attentipn focussed on me in public. Heck, I hated having a wedding. I should have protested by eloping or something. The problem is, I think I my laziness outdoes my hate for being in public. Or maybe I'm just not creative.

Good times. Maybe one of the best things to happen for me.

real MDMA still exists ya know. It's a shame some people can't find it. And there are still parties every bit as much if not more fun than in the early 90's with music that doesn't require mdma to be enjoyed. Most 90's rave music was fucking horrendous.

I think we've lost sight of the real purpose here. There's a war out there and people are dying.





btw, I hated R & S. They just creeped me out.

sounds like the norm, during a war.

Cereal and Saturday morning cartoons is what childhood is about.

I still partake in this lovely tradition. I refuse to grow up.

Close enough, 17. Which some people still find too old to enjoy cartoons, which I strongly disagree with.
