Several hundred people came out Saturday, May 26, 2007 to protest Dick Cheney at West Point, who spoke to a crowd of about 20,000.
Protesters argued they should be allowed on academy grounds to present opposition to Cheney's pro-war views were denied access by federal judges on Friday. They rallied instead in the village of Highland Falls outside a gate to the post.
WESPAC paid $400 for a shuttle bus to take people from the Peeksill Train Station to the rally site but they only collected half of what it cost them.
For those of you who are able to, you are welcome to make an online contribution at http://www.wespac.org to help cover the cost of the bus.
Contributions of $10, $20 or more are all welcome. Checks in the mail made payable to WESPAC Foundation are also welcome, sent to WESPAC Foundation, PO Box 488, White Plains, NY 10602.
Here is a short clip of the march:
See the whole enchilada - 3 hours 33 minutes 43 seconds of raw video. It's a long download, but streams well.
Thank you very much to Chuck Bell, Ceil Lavan, Nick Mottern, Dennis Hanratty and to all who worked hard to make this happen.
