Iraq Veterans Against the War Brings the War to Downtown San Francisco
Members of IVAW invaded Union Square on the busiest shopping day of the year to bring attention to the war and occupation of Iraq
As the war and occupation moves towards its sixth anniversary it is hardly mentioned these days in the corporate media. For the people of Iraq the terror of 160,000 U.S. soldiers occupying their country the war is an everyday reality.
