Pink Bloque - February 15, International Day Against the War in Iraq

We had a few more demonstrations under our belt by now. We had some theory, we had sweat suits, we had a well-choreographed dance and we had a really loud sound system this time. We joined with hundreds of others on the street and millions around the world to say "No!" to war, racism, and hate. The Bush administration probably was not paying much attention to us that day, but good still came out of that day. We managed to dance successfully in the street. More importantly, we got a pretty good street dance party going. People were excited for the encouragement and after a while were mimicking our moves or just joining in with their own. War loomed overhead, but on the street there was community.
