Bronx anti-war protesters want troops brought home
A group called The Bronx Action for Peace held an anti-war protest Saturday morning on Grand Concourse and Fordham Road in an effort to bring U.S. soldiers home from Iraq.
Several of the protesters made a point of voicing their support for the troops and the job they do, but want them brought back home as soon as possible. Other members of The Bronx Action for Peace feel that the money being spent on the war should be used to help the poorer sections of the Bronx and New York City.
After the Bronx demonstration, the group boarded a train and joined an even larger city-wide protest in Manhattan.
