Friday marks one year since the United States went to war with Iraq in an effort to topple Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. But the defeat of Iraq’s army and the capture of Saddam Hussein has not ended hostilities and thousands of American troops remain in the region.
In the U.S., protesters against the war continue to speak out, and on Saturday, some Vermonters will mark the one year anniversary of the start of the war with a bus trip to New York City, where a peace rally is planned. Mitch Wertlieb talks with Kimberly Ead, director of the Peace and Human Rights Project with the Burlington Peace and Justice Center.
