Iraq Veterans March Against War at the RNC

by Jeff Paterson, Courage to Resist (jeff [at] paterson.net)
ST. PAUL, MN (September 1, 2008) - On the first day of the Republican National Convention, 60 members of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) marched to the Xcel Energy Center convention site to deliver a briefing to the McCain campaign explaining why they are opposed to the war. Wearing their uniforms and standing in formation, the former service people were turned away by McCain's staff, and Wes Davey, Former Master Sergeant and march leader, was forced off the premises after attempting to deliver the letter in person.
