Local Protesters Mirror Antiwar March in D.C.
1500 protesters stretched nearly four city blocks on Saturday in an antiwar march in St. Paul. Protesters marched from the St. Paul Cathedral to the Xcel Energy Center, continuing on to the State Capitol.
The Xcel, site for the 2008 Republican National Convention, has become a symbol for Republican war policy says local demonstrators.
The event lasted nearly two hours and was similar to an antiwar march in Washington D.C. with thousands of protestors marching from The White House to Capitol Hill.
