Large Scale Protests During the Iraq War

The United States Map With State NamesMarch 19, 2003 marked the beginning of the Iraq War and things haven’t been the same in America, or around the world, since. Countless lives have been lost, and a staggering amount of resources have been consumed as a result of the war. Each year protests have taken place to commemorate the anniversary of the war, and thousands of people have come together to remember fallen soldiers, and those killed or injured in the war.

The protests are often organized to occur at the same time throughout the world. People have come together on a mass scale to make their feelings known about the war. In 2003, approximately 36 million people took part in at least one protest.

The Iraq War was officially declared over on December 15, 2011, yet in Iraq tens of thousands of Iraqis protested on the ninth anniversary of the war this past March. (more…)

Why Continue to Protest the Iraq War?

Every year on March 19, Washington D.C. turns into a place of protest as those in opposition of the Iraq War join hands, raise signs and speak words echoing their views on the war and desire to see all United States troops brought home. In past years, hundreds have been arrested during these protests and many more have waged similar protests in various locations across the country. The message of these protesters is simple, they feel we should not continue to play a part in this war and they want the fighting to be brought to an end. The Iraq War has always been controversial. While some believe the war is based on the United State’s stand against terrorism, others believe it is only motivated by the oil present in that country, and we would not be there if not for the financial stronghold that oil has on our world. Protestors will site the fact that we are spending billions of dollars on a war while the economy at home is suffering. (more…)
