Anti-War Groups Plan To Mark Second Anniversary Of U.S. Invasion of Iraq

NEW YORK (AFP) - Anti-war groups say they are gearing up for a series of national demonstrations, including acts of civil disobedience, to mark the second anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq (news - web sites), spokespeople said. In New York, protesters are planning to march to Times Square and also have plans to picket and bar entry to three army recruitment centers, according to the War Resisters League.

The planned events will also call on Washington to pull US troops out of Iraq. “We don't expect a huge big city protest, but rather some visible activity, in all 50 states," said Bill Dobbs, a spokesman for the United For Peace and Justice coalition which has organized other large anti-war protests.
