Words of War

A sea of people flooded the Mall in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 18 demanding that the Bush administration not invade Iraq and allow the United Nations more time to find the weapons of mass destruction alleged to be in the country; roughly 40 people marched to downtown Saratoga Springs from Ballston Spa to join the Saratoga Peace Alliance’s weekly vigil, one of a number that cropped up in the area this year in response to the U.S. invasion of Iraq; In Albany’s Townsend Park, the band Rockets and Blue Lights greeted a crowd of demonstrators, many of whom traveled the next day to Washington, D.C., for a “bring home the troops” rally on Oct. 24; hundreds took to the streets of Albany on March 20 to protest the beginning of the U.S. military’s invasion of Iraq; generous estimates from some news outlets placed the turnout at 10,000 in Clifton Park for one of many Clear Channel-sponsored “Rallies for the Troops.”
