Hundreds in St. Louis Expected to Protest Iraq War

March 19, 2006 - Posted at 12:49 p.m. CST

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Organizers of an anti-war protest in St. Louis

are expected hundreds of people to turn out today.

Bill Ramsey is coordinating today's event. He's expecting around

800 to take part in marches culminating in a rally at the World's

Fair Pavilion.

It was three years ago today that President Bush ordered the

invasion of Iraq that would topple Saddam Hussein but lead to a war

in which thousands have died.

Across the globe, thousands of anti-war protesters have taken to

the streets this weekend to mark the anniversary of the U-S-led

invasion of Iraq.

The demonstrations have taken place everywhere from New York's

Times Square to outside Vice President Dick Cheney's residence in

Washington to Australia, Japan and South Korea.
