4/26/08: Raleigh NC hosted a military parade to honor the troops. The ~20 protesters offering a different perspective – mostly Veterans for Peace, received little or no coverage in the news. One peaceful protester encountered harrassment and attacks in front of police, Raleigh dignitaries, and the general parade audience, including a young boy who swiped a sign saying “jesus said: love your enemies” while the crowd roared with amusement and approval.
