Demonstrations


Two protestors in warm clothing stand in the center of the photograph, holding signs that read "Chunksa Yuha Is Not Our Messanger," and "Hell No Hanta Yo Is Not Our "Roots."" The signs are in protest of a TV movie from 1984 called "The Mystic Warrior," based off the 1979 novel "Hanta Yo" by Ruth Beebe Hill. Both fictions covered the histories of the Oglala Lakota Sioux, but the author was accused by many Indigenous historians and activists of falsely portraying Indigenous Americans for personal gain (The Mystic Warrior IMDb).

Two protestors stand in front of the Playtime Rex Theater in Tacoma's Eastside neighborhood. The original Rex Theater opened in 1919, and closed its doors in 1958. In 1980, adult theater corporation Playtime Cinemas reopened the location as the Playtime Rex Theater for live performances and adult movie showings. In the photograph, the theater sign reads, "Playtime Rex: Annete Haven In Person Tonight." The protestors pose underneath the marquee, holding picket signs that read, "Citizens Against Porn" on the left, and "Get Filth Out of Our Neighborhood," "Unless Ye Repent So Ye Also Shall Perish," held by the person on the right.

Most of the signs held are blurred or other wise unreadable, but several visible signs read, "Fish Now Elk This Fall," likely in reference to the Fishing Wars of the Puget Sound region in the 1960's and 70's. Three small boats and one RV is parked along the street protestors are gathered on.

As a submarine approaches from the right, protestor Sallie Shawl lets her feeling be known to passersby on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge shortly before noon today. Shawl had been tipped off that the passing sub might prove to be a Trident class unit, which it apparently was not. None-the-less, Shawl noted that even Non-Trident subs have nuclear weapons capabilities so the protestor continues her display. When a Washington State Patrol officer stopped on the bridge to scoot Shawl away (saying she had been warned twice to leave the bridge) his car set in motion a three-car rear-ender that resulted in more than minor damage to a car driven by Greg Splett, 19, of Bremerton. Splett's car was the last in line to be involved in the accident. The middle vehicle, a small pick-up driven by John Lee, 43, of Gig Harbor also received damage. The lead car, driven by a woman I didn't get the name of, received apparently little or no damage. A classic object lesson in A CAUSE AND AN EFFECT.
