Wireimage removes demonstration pictures

I wanted to post pictures I found on Wireimage of a large demonstration in LA protesting the third anniversary of the war on Iraq. The image gallery was there this morning, and had pictures of celebrities attending the protest including Martin Sheen, Maria Bello, Diane Lane, Paul Haggis and Rob Morrow. When I went back to Wireimage a few hours later the pictures were gone and I could find no trace of them.

According to ANSWER, the protest’s organizer, 20,000 people were there. A documented 250,000 gathered in DC prior to the war, and protests in NY have drawn similar numbers of demonstators. 20,000 is still a significant number for LA, and people protested in NY, San Francisco, and in cities around the world on Saturday.

Wireimage has pictures of the demonstrations in London this weekend, but again the ones that exist of the LA protest are curiously gone. Wireimage thinks it’s not worthy of coverage despite the attending celebrities. Let’s get the world out.

Here are Pictures from Yahoo! of the protests around the world this weekend. Celebrities are fun and we need a distraction, but there’s an illegal, expensive and deadly war being waged in Iraq. My cousin is over there and I don’t want him or any more other people to have to die.
