Did Stephen Stills write that article?

Yes, there was an article in the Herald yesterday: http://www.heraldsun.com/orange/10-808183.cfm
"Singing songs and carrying signs, about 200 people gathered Thursday evening to protest the war in Iraq and demand that President George W. Bush withdraw U.S. troops."

Great rally! Two hundred+ people, lots of young people, at least one veteran of the Iraq war... Many faces who are not a part of the usual suspects. Lets bring the troops home now, and, while we're at it, get out of Afghanistan, no more attacks in Somalia, and a just settlement in Palestine.

While you are at it, why don't you demand a chicken in every pot?? You are as likely to get it. I wonder how much CO2 was expended getting to the protest.

There may be no more important information to teach our children than the oft-repeated pattern in history whereby patriotism & nationalism are harnessed to generate war profits. Shouldn't an enlightened community like ours make sure that our school systems have an onging curriculum that deals with this reality?

Did this get any news coverage?
