Anti-war protestors took to Bronx streets on two-year anniversary of the Iraq War

Anti-war protestors took to the streets in the Bronx and around the country on Saturday, the two-year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.

Protestors carried coffins draped in American flags and draped in black cloth to symbolize the number of casualties in Iraq and the United States. Demonstrators also held signs as they passed a military recruiting center on Fordham Road. Bronx protestors say they want the soldiers to come home. Protestors also wore shirts with photos of soldiers killed in Iraq as they read their names out loud.

Dozens of anti-war demonstrators rallied peacefully, but the New York Police Department was present to make sure things didn?t get out of hand.
