Memphis Anti-War Protest Wednesday

by

comment
Congress is planning to send a bill to the White House tomorrow that would require the president to start bringing our troops home from Iraq this year. President Bush has said repeatedly he's going to veto it.

More than 200 rallies supporting Congress' bill are planned nationwide. The one in Memphis is set for 5:00 p.m. Wednesday at Poplar and Highland.

Organizers are hoping the rallies will remind Americans that it was four years ago Wednesday that the president declared "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq. For more info, go here.
