College in Florida unites to oppose Bush, Iraq War

"I've always been very proud of my country," said Gonzalez, 53, one of the Veterans for Peace who marshaled Saturday's protest. "But at this moment, I'm not."

These are hard feelings for a Marine Corps veteran who wore the American flag into combat.

Gonzalez was among hundreds of demonstrators drawn from all pockets of South Florida culture: children and old ladies, peace drummers and bullhorn screamers, Cubans calling for and end to the travel ban and Haitians calling for the beginning of asylum reform. BG NEWS
