Grannies Mark Recruiting Office with Doves and Blood

On December 28 the Seriously Pissed Off Grannies returned to the Army/Marine recruiting center on NE Broadway in Portland. During the course of their protest simulated bloody hand prints and white peace doves were taped to the windows. Messages were written in washable window paint.

The police arrived about ten minutes later and the grannies waited patiently - not wanting to be charged with fleeing - while the police and marines tried to decide what to do. Officers were overheard mentioning something about a "jury trial." When two grannies said they were ready to go home, but didn't want to be accused of fleeing, an officer asked how they could help them go. It was the appointed time, and quite cold out, so the Grannies asked for the return of their confiscated sign and left their messages on the windows.
