No War on Cuba - Demonstration
in front of the Cuban Interests Section in Washington, DC


May 17, 2003 we started gathering before 8 AM in front of the Cuban Interests Section in Washington, DC. By 9:00 we had doubled our numbers. We'll get that photo soon! (125kb)

We started arriving well before 8 am and stayed until after 2 pm and the counter demonstrators had gone.

The gusanos arrived after 9 AM and we not only outnumbered them all day, but what is with the con-joined Cuba-US flags? (148kb)

The counter demonstrators never outnumbered us.

The Maimi Cubans included no people of color - except on their signs. Needless to say, their comments and behavior lacked creativity or sense. (153kb)

Compare their lack of diversity - and what they stand for, to ours!


We just kept growing...
