Marching for International Women's Day

To help celebrate International Women's Day, (March is also Women's History Month), I went to San Antonio along with 6 others from CodePink Austin to participate in their annual march through downtown yesterday. It was a diverse, spirited crowd, and I liked the range of peace and justice messages on the signs and banners held by the marchers. We held a banner made for the occasion by our own seamstress extraordinaire, Heidi Turpin. There was a notable presence of counter-recruitment signs and messages displayed throughout the procession, too, as shown in the other photos above. This was significant in San Antonio, home to several military bases.

Big thanks to Sylvia Thompson for these photos.
