Seattle's Iraq War Protest

This is how the Seattle PI described the anticipated protest yesterday
And in Seattle, two anti-war marches on Friday could delay afternoon traffic and part of the evening commute, city officials warned.
As many as 3,000 people are expected to participate, according to a city announcement, which said anyone traveling into or out of the downtown core area "should plan on delays in their commute as the peak afternoon traffic will be impacted."

This is how the Seattle Times described the actual protest today
A crowd of roughly 400 anti-war demonstrators — most of them high school and college students — marched through downtown Seattle today, carrying signs and chanting slogans such as "This is what democracy looks like!"
No one was arrested and the young people continued their march to Judkins Park, their numbers shrinking to about 200 by the time the demonstration wrapped up about 3:30 p.m.

Power to the person... singular.
