Demonstrations in Atlanta were good we had a turnout of about 100-120 people in front of the CNN Center. Most people supported what we were demonstarting for, alot of people were honking.
What was interesting is that a huge 'peace rally' was set to go on about 5-6 o'clock. Virtually all the members of the rally stood across the street. Finally a couple of them joined, but majority just stood and watched.
Out of the hundreds who passed, only two seemed to have a problem with our demonstrations. And i think that is because they either a) don't have any information about what's going on Iran or b) have the radical view that all Muslims are good dead, no matter how pro-American they're.
Regardless the support the great--alot of honking, thumbs up, and the negativity was extremely little--2 people.
That's the news for demonstrations in Atlanta--there will be another one on Tuesday from 5-9 with live Music front of CNN center if anyone is interested.
Glad to hear about a successful demonstration of support for the Iranian protesters. I can only hope more non Iranian Americans will join the other demonstrations in the next few days. The image of Iranians and Americans standing shoulder to shoulder in support of the Iranian freedom fighters will provide Iranians inside of Iran with tremendous moral support. They are going to need all the support they can get.
