Protestors March After Bush Speech

St. Louis, Mo. – Several hundred people marched down Grand Avenue in South St. Louis Monday night to protest the looming war with Iraq. The march came immediately after President Bush's address to the nation.

Many marchers carried flags representing the United Nations and countries opposed to war. St. Louis resident Tom Sanger carried one of the flags.

"I think it's going to be an illegal war. It's going to be an immoral war, Sanger said. "[President Bush] has not made the case that we should be going to war. And I am completely against it."

The St. Louis Instead of War Coalition organized the rally. The group is planning to protest downtown the evening after any war begins.
