My friend Gaius snapped this photo of me last Wednesday (May 3) at the weekly peace vigil outside the corporate headquarters of Alliant TechSystems - Minnesota's largest military contractor and one of the nation's largest manufacturer of ammunition.
It's not just the issue that's making me look so glum. It's also the fact that attending the Alliant vigil means getting up at 6:00 a.m, and I'm, in the words of my late grandmother, Nanna Sparkes, “an owl, not a fowl”!
I've been participating in the weekly vigil at Alliant since February 1997. For more photographs and information about this vigil, visit my Faces of Resistance website and click on “Gallery 8: Alliant Action.”
