Big Rally!!

Believe it or not, there are people in Alaska who don’t like Sarah Palin. Appears there was a big anti-Palin rally in Anchorage, Alaska, in another part of town the day (9/13/08) Sarah was greeted by about one thousand people at the Dena’ina Convention Center. This anti-Palin rally was held in the lawn in front of the Loussac Library in midtown Anchorage. The video below was taken by an Alaskan blogger named Mudflats who has a great write up of this event on his blog and dozens of other pictures of this huge rally. He estimates about 1400 anti-Palin people with maybe 90 or so counter demonstrators.

Below are three of the 82 photos Mudflats took during this rally. All of the signs were handmade in a very short time.

    I was starting to worry that Alaskans were morons. Thanks for this.

    Yes, Missy, I was really encouraged to see this. Those people are steaming mad which is great. In fact, it looks almost “normal” up there in beautiful downtown Anchorage. Who woulda thought?
