the crowd of protesters chanted outside the federal building in Santa Fe today.
"What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!"
The group was organized, at least in part, by the nonprofit
to protest Israel's
on ships carrying aid bound for Gaza (read about the flotilla raid's aftermath
). Carrying signs that condemned Israel's
of Gaza and US
to Israel, approximately 40 Santa Feans picketed today at noon.
A rep from the local Amnesty International chapter led the chants and exhorted protesters to rebut some of the recent pro-Israel opinions
in the New Mexican. All in all, it was a good, old-fashioned peaceful picket—which takes some doing, given the issue's
. Even the police didn't seem to have much complaint, aside from telling a guy to get down from a retaining wall. See more photos at
