Chicagoans Rally, March in Sixth Anniversary Iraq War Protest

What do we want? Peace and Justice! Protesters marked the sixth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq by successfully staging a long-contested march and set of rallies in Chicago's Pilsen/Little Village community on Saturday March 14.

The protests, which typically were held around the war's anniversary on March 20, were moved to a week earlier to mobilize Chicago support for national antiwar protests in Washington DC on the weekend of March 20. Participants demanded an end to US wars of domination and empire abroad and to end wars on immigrants and youth at home, and echoed the need for continuing grassroots activism despite Democratic Party electoral gains.
