In recent days tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets of major cities of Europe, the Middle East andAsia to protest against the US and British air strikes on Afghanistan.

Largely under the radar screen of the corporate media, people in hundreds of communities around the US are alsoorganizing demonstrations, vigils and teach-ins to protest the bombings. Yesterday, we spoke to people in OlympiaWashington about the ways people there have been organizing since September 11. Today, we’re going to Kennebunk,Maine, where local high school students just held their first antiwar demonstration.

Guests:

  • David Morgan, senior at Kennebunk High School who helped organize antiwar protest.
  • Scott Rose, senior at Kennebunk High School who helped organize antiwar protest.
