There has been some question whether protesters from the Plowshare Peace Center in Roanoke should be allowed to use the sidewalk in front of the Roanoke City Market to stage their anti-war protests. The building's managers say they are disruptive. Today--permit in hand--they proved that is hardly the case, even in the middle of a parade.
they were quiet, peaceful, and thoroughly un-intrusive. Fact is, they were quite pleasant and those owning the building are quite wrong to have believed otherwise.
