30,000 march against war at the RNC
St. Paul, MN – On September 1, the opening day of the Republican National Convention, 30,000 people rallied at the Minnesota State Capitol and marched against the war. It was the largest anti-war march in the U.S. this year.
The four main themes of the march were U.S. out of Iraq now; money for human needs, not for war; say no to the Republican agenda; and demand peace, justice and equality.
The march was led off by large contingents of veterans, immigrants, labor, poor people, Somalis, Palestinians, and students.
