Boston Protest Against U.S. Wars on Iraq/Syria

About 50 peace activists held an anti-war speakout at Park St., then marched behind a model drone to downtown crossing, where a mock drones war "die-in" took place as street theater. It attracted a great deal of attention from downtown shoppers; a police car showed up, but allowed us to stay and continue our protest.
