On Sunday about 4,000 people came together in Uptown on Hennepin Avenue to protest the war in Iraq. They marched North to Loring Park chanting slogans and holding signs spreading the message of peace.
The march marks the 4th anniversary of the United States war against Iraq. The protest message was â€śBring the Troops Home Now!â€?
The protest called for an immediate end to U.S. military intervention in Iraq and demanded the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops.
Cities across the country like New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco also held anti-war protests this past weekend. Washington, D.C., attracted tens of thousands of protestors trying to send the message that the war needs to end and the troops need to be brought home.
The rallies are all part of the Global Day of Protest.
Among the groups that helped to build the Minneapolis March 18th event were Women Against Military Madness, Twin Cities Peace Campaign, Anti-War Committee, and Youth Against War and Racism and Military.
