Veterans fill Lowell Iraqi restaurant after window smashed

Veterans for Peace and supporters fill the Babylon Restaurant in Lowell for dinner in a show of support, after the restaurant’s window was smashed.


PS: Even more good news: apparently the rock thrower has been caught, and didn’t even know what kind of restaurant it was when he threw a rock at it. It was a stupid crime, not a hate crime, apparently. In any case the reaction above is what we want to see in America: Ben Franklin would be proud.
