War anniversary sweater

To commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Iraq war and 4,000th US military death, Dan Haugen made a Google map of lives lost by Minnesota military personnel, two dozen students at the University of Minnesota were arrested for blocking the entrance to a Guard recruiting office, and "revolutionary knitter" Lisa Anne Auerbach knitted a sweater.

Thanks for the mention of the protests in Minneapolis yesterday. It's unfortunate that the MPR article has some of their facts wrong, though. I was part of a group of Macalester students who shut down the Army and Navy recruiting offices across the street from where all the U of M students got arrested. But the MPR article says that we weren't arrested because the recruiting offices were closed. Oh no no, the recruiting offices were closed because we were chained to the doors. Slight difference.

Also, incredible sweater!
