Not in our name, 2003

About 100 young protesters from “Not in Our Name” and other organizations held a “die-in for peace” outside Philadelphia City Hall and later blocked rush-hour traffic on March 17th, 2003, while demonstrating against the possibility of war with Iraq. The United States launched the invasion three days later.
