The folks here did manage to rally behind the cause and there was a small
protest on Sunday (Saturday in the States). About 50-55 people gathered on
the sea ice to protest the possible war in Iraq. It was a grey and particularly cold day so the demonstration was brief, but heartfelt. The entire thing lasted about 20 minutes. We had banners and signs expressing our concerns about the war and we took several photos, shouted out “Antarctica says no to war!” and then went back to the business of the day (several people were on a break from work). It was the third time this season that there were anti-war protests.
