Protest in Berkeley
There was a gathering in UC Berkeley's Sproul Plaza today at noon to protest a possible attack on Iran. The participants were also protesting the use of "water boarding" as a torture method used during US interrogations of terrorim suspects. There was a good crowd gathered around the speeches and the "water boarding simulation," which was heart wrenching to watch even in simulation. Most of the protestors were Americans. I went with my friend, Renaud. Renaud is a Frenchman and an American who was raised in Iran and graduated from Razi High School in Tehran. He speaks fluent Farsi and loves Iran. I talked about him, in a post in March.
