I tried to put in my opinion of them (and some other protesters) in the 
strip.  They've walked out in front of a car, against traffic laws (or 
so I imply).  The driver honks and says, "You $#!+s".  The marchers say, 
"Not Important."

(Maybe I could put in translations.)

The soldiers presented a pathetic but inspiring spectacle. The
hospitals were crowded with sick and wounded; the walls were
gradually crumbling under incessant shell fire, yet that garrison
of heroes remained undaunted.

It was as Buck said, "just as if they had been Americans."
