anyone can submit an article to Indymedia, so whoever was there & writes up a story, please post it on Indymedia's site. www.indymedia.org is the main site, has links to regional sites. & if those who were there could tell us what media showed up, so we know where to look for coverage, that would be great.

Is there no news of this anywhere? I've looked at some of the major news channels & see nothing. Anyone have any links?

Sus

Baby the babies while they're babies so they don't need babying for a lifetime.

Well, I'm having "sling envy" looking at all those pics!! Wish I could've been there. I thought for a moment yesterday about driving the 4hrs to get there, but that would've just been insane!

And about watching the show this morning....There's an hour of my life I'll never get back!! Ugh, I'm so glad I don't watch that crap anymore. I never liked it but was addicted to morning tv and didn't have cable...!!!

Ok, everyone HAS to register on that news site (it's free!) and read the story and the discussion board that follows! There's even several pics of mamas at their local nurse-in!

So ... we came, we nursed, we conquered ... :LOL

Great turnout. Total guess of about 200 mamas plus babies. Great support from stray passers-by and relative cooperation from the babies ... :LOL

Quite a number of photographers, though from what media outlets I know not. Spoke to various mamas who were interviewed by The New York Times and the New York Daily News. Also saw WABC's local NY station's news cameras interviewing mamas. There was also something called "Alphamom," not sure what they were, but some people were signing press releases allowing the Alphamom people to use footage of them nursing so ...

All in all, a fine time. Brought DS#2(3yo) and DD#2(1yo) b'H, and DS#2 for the very first time in his life did not want to nurse when offerred :LOL ... though he did eventually ... seeing all those hundreds of other kids nursing finally got to him, I guess :LOL ...

From MDC I met anniej, UrbanPlanter, Mom2AliKat, guerillamama, annettemarie, katenyc ...

ETA I think I met BklynJen too but I'm not sure :LOL : ... was that you?

And ETA again I think I met anthromom(??) too ... the one who's an anthropologist, not the one who's an anthrosophist : :LOL


Looking forward to more pictures. Saw the top of my head in one of the yahoo groups pictures, wow, a moment of fame :LOL ...

Anyway, to all who came and to all who sent light&energy our way, too ...

So which mdc mama is Heather? And who are the other mamas in the pix?
I hate having to register for a site, and I've already forgotten my password.

Tucson is a SUCCESS!! We had 18 moms 2 dads, and various kids. The only media was the local station. I was interviewed, I hope I did not sound like a complete arse :LOL We were very well received. I will check back in after the story airs!

Hampton Roads (Norfolk affiliate - WVEC) was a success. We had on-camera interviews and also a reporter from the Virginia Pilot (hopefully a positive article will apear in tomorrow's paper). I'll upload pictures tonight and will post them as well!
