Milwaukee, WI - One hundred people marched here, March 19, to protest the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on the seventh anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.

Protesters marched from the Federal Building to Town Hall, demanding, “U.S. out of Iraq and Afghanistan now!” and, “Money for jobs and education, not for war and occupation.”

Chance Zombor, of Waukesha Students for a Democratic Society, spoke at the protest. "These days it's easier to be deployed than employed," Zombor stated, explaining how hard it is to walk through his two-year college campus and not see a military recruiter or poster to join the military.

Zombor also commented that progressive anti-war activists should support the patriotic Iraqis who are fighting to free their country from U.S. imperialism.

Students for a Democratic Society helped organize the protest, along with the Milwaukee Coalition for a Just Peace.
