Anti-war march in Minneapolis, October 17, 2009 (Fight Back! News/Staff)

On Oct. 17, 400 people joined a Minneapolis anti-war protest as part of a national day of peace actions that saw anti-war events in 50 cities across the U.S. on the weekend of Oct. 17-18.

The protest in Minneapolis called for an end to the U.S. war in Afghanistan and an end to the occupation of Iraq. The protest came at a time when the Obama administration is considering a plan to escalate the war in Afghanistan by sending up to 40,000 additional U.S. troops.
