We did it!
Despite the short Notice, despite the disorganization, despite the people who said they would show up and didn't, we did it. Oh, and I take back every and any bad word or insinutaion I said about Karim here. His organizational skills and the people he brought were awesome. There wouldn't have been a protest without his efforts. I tip my hat to you Dude. Man, what a day! The whole story to come in the next update!
