The third anniversary of the invasion of Iraq has brought anti-war protests. In St. Louis, 2,300 mock tombstones, each bearing the name of a soldier killed in Iraq, were put up in Forest Park. Organizers say they had more participants than they had last year. In Kansas City, organizers counted about 50 organizations taking part in an anti-war demonstration. Leaflets with the names of dead American soldiers on one side and the estimated number of dead Iraqui civilians on the other were atached to lines stretched across Mill Creek park. In Columbia, an estimated 400 people gathered on the courthouse lawn to protest the war. A few blocks away, three people stood in front of a military recruting station showing support for the military.
