Anti-War March in St. Paul
September 24, 2007
More than 1500 people protested the war in Iraq on September 15, marching from the cathedral in St. Paul, by way of the Xcel Center - the scene of next year's Republican Party national convention - to the State Capitol.
Veteran anti-war protester Marv Davidoff was one of the organizers of the Honeywell Project in the 1960's. The group demonstrated against the Minnesota-based company which at the time, produced bombs for the US military. He says protest is still necessary and organizing is the key. Another activist speaks against counter-protesters’ position that peace activism is opposed to the military.
