Amy comes almost every day and makes a mandala peace symbol on the sidewalk, although she says its not really a mandala, not so brilliant and creative she claims - but her mandalas are stunning, beautiful, and inspiring - and all made from nature, things she collects as she walks around.

The coffee shop, People's Cafe, let's us keep the protest bag in the corner there, overnite, over the weekend, so it is available for whomever wants to come and protest, even if we're not there.

The copy owner is gracious, discounts our copies, and allows us to lean posters, photos of the Real Faces of War against his building.
