Protest against Iraq war on Jan 27, 2007 on Washington Mall

The protest was lively, on a one-day respite from the return of winter, as the temperature on the Mall in Washington got to about 50 degrees. The signs were pretty explicit, calling for impeachment, another one proposing a memorial with a list of names, very much like the Vietnam War memorial; another read "no billionaire left behind" (or "leave no billionaire behind:) and refered to Enron. The crowd was mostly white and middle class or upper. The "March" ran from about 11 AM until 1 PM and went around the Capitol.

A few active servicemembers did attend, and this is their constitutional right to do so.
