Photographs from the War Resisters League Funeral Procession
18 November 2005
A group of activists marched from Washington Sq. Park to a military recruiting station on 22nd St at 7th Ave to protest the war in Iraq. The group carried coffins draped in US flags and black cloth to protest the deaths of the US led invasion.
The New York City Local of the War Resisters League organized the unpermitted march which used the sidewalk. Police stopped traffic along the way allowing the procession to move freely and often against the lights. After remaining in front of the recruiting center for a few minutes, the group walked back down to Washington Sq.
The march was one of a number of nonviolent resistance events held across the country today coordinated by the National Call for Nonviolent Resistance. Today being called "National Stand Down Day."
