Washington Protest, January 18, 3003

Washington Protest, January 18, 3003

by Lynne Jackson

Four buses and one van left Albany, New York just after midnight on Saturday morning, January 18, to attend the anti-war protest in Washington, D.C. It was bitter cold out, in the single didits, when we left Albany. These are the photographs I took, with my captions and represent my experiences. I can be reached at lynne1349@aol.com.
