9/11 Anti-US Imperialism Protest

Stockholm - 213, originally uploaded by jonoliver.

I went to a an anti-u.s. imperialism protest near stockholm's central station on the anniversary of 9/11 (tuesday). it was somehow tame and intense at the same time. there more pictures here. i'm glad to see people out making their voices heard but the energy spent didn't seem that constructive. they toppled at 40-foot (?) effigy of bush made to look like the devil which seemed a little too oversimplified. as people were stomping on it, two guys got into a shoving was too hard to figure out what for with the language barrier. i'm going to try to get someone to translate all the signs for me.
