Anti-Iraq War Protesters From Eau Claire, Other Wisconsin Cities Head For Washington

Some 700 people are expected to leave Wisconsin Friday for Washington D.C. where they'll take part in Saturday's anti-war rally.

Peace Action Wisconsin has organized 14 buses that will leave from Eau Claire, Madison, Milwaukee, Kenosha, Ashland, Wausau and Duluth, Minnesota.

The rally is in support of bringing U-S troops home from Iraq. Organizers are expecting 100-thousand people in Washington, including Cindy Sheehan, the California mother who drew thousands to a protest outside President Bush's Texas ranch last month.

Mike Miles is a peace activist from Luck. He's expecting news about Hurricane Rita will overshadow the march Saturday.
