Scenes from the Citizen Counter - Filibuster

These Memphis, Tennessee patriots, exercising First Amendment rights, stood vigil against the Republican filibuster of Senate Amendment 2087, the Reed/Levin bill providing for a "reduction and transition of United States forces in Iraq."

Outside the Memphis offices of Senators Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker, participants held signs and waved at passers-by, while others took turns reading aloud letters and essays from armed services members and their families.

Citizens show their support with hearty displays of: "Thumbs Up!"
