The Division of War

The Division of War
By: Wes Wallace

(Carbondale, IL)--A steady rainfall and chilly temperatures didn't stop more than 100 anti-war demonstrators from taking part in 'The World Says No to War".  The event was held around the world, to allow people a chance to rally together and protest the looming war with Iraq.

In Carbondale, folks gathered along Route 13 to kick off activities that included a vigil, march, and rally. Not everyone lining the streets agreed with the protestors who held signs of their own, in support of the military and the U-S war effort. Although this was a worldwide event, both sides usually stand along the road in downtown Carbondale every Saturday, with the street and a major issue dividing the two groups.
