War Anniversary Marked with Protests

By  | 

It's been three years since the U.S. led invasion began. Since then more than 2,300 soldiers have been killed in Iraq. And the anniversary of the war has been marked with protests around the nation.

The Greater Lansing Network Against War and Injustice staged five simultaneous demonstrations Sunday. Anti-war activist Jack Smith says the protests are important in keeping the government accountable.

"We're in a mess in Iraq. The current policy is just not working and we're getting less safe and secure. I didn't like being lied to about the reasons for going to war. I've been at it a long time. I'm not going to give up until I see rational movement on the policy in Iraq."

The GLNAWI will continue with daily demonstrations throughout the week. The protests will be held in front of U.S. Representative Mike Roger's office.
