On Saturday, millions of people around the world took part in a massive display of anti-war sentiment. Kansans also joined the global day of protest against a possible war with Iraq.
In downtown Wichita, about 100 people braved the cold temperatures and frigid winds to protest the possibility of war in the Middle East. The group says the U.S. should not go to war because of the innocent victims war would bring.
Over 1,000 people marched in Lawrence. Many carried signs like "Drop Bush, Not Bombs" and "War is just stupid." There Coalition for Peace and Justice has been holding similar anti-war vigils at the courthouse in Lawrence since last September.
In Newton, about 400 people marched from Bethel College to the Harvey County Courthouse, praying, speaking and singing for peace. About 25 people stood nearby in support of President Bush and the U.S. military. They sang "God Bless America" and waved American flags.
