(clockwise from right) The war in Afghanistan, the pending invasion of Iraq, the collapse of such corporate monsters like Enron and WorldCom, and the ongoing violence between Israel and Palestine all set the stage for a number of protests locally and nationally. Thousands of demonstrators converged on New York City during the World Economic Forum annual meeting to protest globalization; activists marched up Albany's State Street for a candlelight vigil to protest the United States' continued bombing on the Puerto Rican island of Vieques; local residents embarked on a 17-day peace walk from Schenectady to New York City, where they joined thousands of others for a candlelight vigil in New York's Union Square on Sept. 11; Palestinian and Israeli sympathizers exchanged words at a pro-Israel rally last September in front of the Capitol; hundreds of local protesters rallied in Albany's Townsend Park in October to voice dissent against a possible U.S. invasion of Iraq.
