Memorial to be Held in Support of Troop Withdrawal from Iraq
Columbus OH Saturday, November 5 The OSU student peace advocacy group AntiWar Columbus will be demonstrating in support of troop withdrawal from Iraq at the Gallery Hop in the Short North area from 8 PM 11 PM on Saturday November 5th.
Students will assemble at the Gazebo in Goodale Park at 7:30 PM and march to the intersection of Buttles Ave. and High St. at 7:50 PM. When the march reaches High St. several large banners will be unfurled that depict one footprint for each of the over 2000 U.S. troops that has been killed. Names of the soldiers have been written alongside each footprint.
This past October marked one of the deadliest months for U.S. forces since the 2003 invasion. The last week of October also marked another grim reminder of the heavy costs for the war in Iraq with
over 2000 service members killed to date. The memorial and speak-out is in support of bringing home the troops now, and is one of a series of future planned events by Anti-War Columbus to promote this message.
