War Protesters Plan Day of Civil Disobedience In D.C.

Washington (AP) This will be a day of anti-war demonstrations in the nation's capital.

Thousands of protesters are expected for what's billed as a day of coordinated non-violent civil disobedience aimed at interrupting business as usual.

Demonstrators plan a blockade outside the Internal Revenue Service to protest the use of taxpayers' money to pay for the Iraq war that began five years ago.

And there will also be what organizers are calling the March of the Dead: protesters dressed in black and wearing skull-like masks will stop at war memorials to read the names of the dead to mark the fifth anniversary.
