There are some peaceniks on Gates Circle. They’ve got some signage, little candles, and a guitar. Several incarnations of “the news” is there.
Assuming that this is an anti-war demonstration, I say the following: Come on now people. Go ahead and express yourself if it makes you feel better, but if you really want to make a change, go through the legitimate channels. Tell your congressman you’re not going to vote for him again if your demands are not met. Get a bunch of people to say that. Then your congressman will go to work and your voice will be heard. It may not be perfect, but it’s the best we’ve come up with so far.

That’s barely even the ostensible purpose of those events, as far as I can tell.
The real purpose is to act contrary and informed so as to impress other hippies. It’s their mating dance.
