Antiwar Protesters Hold Vigils on Fifth Anniversary of Iraq War

Opponents of the War in Iraq will be holding protests, including vigils, across the country today to commerate the fifth anniversary of the conflict.

Here's an excerpt of the Orlando Sentinel article that ran in the paper today:

WASHINGTON - Opponents of the Iraq war will gather for vigils across the country today in the culmination of a series of protests marking the fifth anniversary of the conflict.

'It has been five years too many. We're in a war that's only for money and oil,' said Kathryn Milholland, 19, a sophomore at the University of Central Florida.

Milholland and six others from Central Florida affiliated with the anti-war group CODEPINK got a jump on the protesting with a week of demonstrations in Washington.
