Antiwar Encampment


It was a lovely day to walk home along the Mall yesterday, and I saw this camp en route. Just by 3rd St NW on the Mall, west of the Capitol Reflecting Pool, a cluster of tents has gone up, with banners in English, Spanish, and Arabic, calling to “Cut Off War Funding” and “Bring Home the Troops Now,” while music and antiwar slogans blare from loudspeakers. This is Encampment to Stop the War, some kind of nonviolent tent camp resistance action, there from March 12-19. Here’s their schedule.

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
