MidGorge protests Iraq War

January 27 "Bridges for Peace" rallies show Hood River and The Dalles support to end the war
Over 40 persons braved cold winds to carry banners and signs demanding peace on January 27 onto the Hood River 2nd Street freeway overpass, in solidarity with the antiwar march and rally in Washington DC; the nonviolent demonstration was sponsored by Columbria River Fellowship for Peace. Another 25 persons, in The Dalles, in a demonstration called by Wasco County Citizens for Human Dignity, protested the war with signs and banners on the town's main freeway overpass, but after a time were ordered off by police claiming the demonstration was distracting drivers and dangerous.
