So I walked around Greenlake with my mom on Sunday and saw this:
Apparently, it is called the Arlington Northwest Exhibit, here is the info from the Evergreen Peace and Justice Community:
The Arlington Northwest exhibit is a nonpartisan memorial, raising public awareness of the costs of the war in Iraq. It is setup and maintained by members of EPJC and the local Veterans for Peace chapter. The Arlington Northwest exhibit, in Peter Kirk Park, Oct. 2004 is shown below. Each cross represents one service member who has died.
Arlington Northwest Display is a memorial to US service people who have died in the Iraq, now numbering over 1630. The memorial consists of small crosses and headstones, one for each of those who has died, and all arrayed as they would be at Arlington National Cemetery. This is a nonpartisan memorial, designed to raise public awareness of the costs of the war in Iraq.
End quote. Anyway, there were religious symbols of Judaism and Islam as well, and some nameless "headstones" (I think they're wood....so). I think that this is a great idea and really effective- you can feel the numbers as people more clearly. At the main tent (? was it a tent...?) the people listed how many people from each country had died in the war (although I think it was just soldiers, not civilians).
Also, there are some wire walkers out at Greenlake, tying their wires between trees and trying it out. One of them was v. nice, asking children if they wanted to try. It reminded me of Man on Wire except without the arrogance. Hoorah!
