This is what democracy looks like

From today's D&C, about yesterday's march:

Immersed in a crowd of chanting protesters, Amanda Yilmaz waved her upside-down American flag high above her head.

The upside-down flag is a universal symbol of distress. And that’s exactly what the 37-year-old Rochester woman sees in America today.

’’The ideals we stand for as a nation are under threat,’’ she said as she and close to 300 peace activists crowded around the Liberty Pole on Thursday afternoon. ‘’We’ve said might is right. We’re just becoming, in essence, an outlaw nation.’’

Yes, that's my partner. She had rather a lot more to say to the reporter, and said it rather eloquently. There's another march today. We're going.
