Protesters on Parade

From AP:

AUCHTERARDER, Scotland - Thousands of protesters chanting “Power to the People!” began a march toward the site of the G-8 summit on Wednesday, following hours of acrimony caused by a decision � later reversed � to ban the demonstration. The protesters, banging drums, blowing whistles and led by a bagpiper dressed in traditional Scottish costume, marched through the narrow streets of Auchterarder, a village of about 4,000 people, toward the nearby fenced-off perimiter of Gleneagles.

Somewhere in that crowd is Seattle’s own Infernal Noise Brigade, looking damn good and making a racket. I wish I could find pictures. If anyone comes across pictures of the INB on news websites, email me… This is the part of their European tour I’m missing. (For tour dates and info, click here.)
