Ithaca

Ithaca is the home of the St. Patrick's Four. They went into a military recruiting station on St. Patrick's Day in 2003 and poured their blood around to protest the war in Iraq. A jury just acquitted them of the most serious charge of conspiracy. Two of the military officers present when they poured that blood came to Eyes Wide Open.

The officers spent about 15 minutes looking at the names and thanked us for doing it. They would not say whether they were for or against the war. Their point of view is that the people of the United States get what they ask for. One of them left saying that "quite a few chunks of my soul are left here."

The Ithaca Journal is one of the few newspapers to run a photo of the 1,000 shoe representing the 100,000 Iraqi civilians who have died because of the war.
