OLEAN, N.Y. – Fourteen members of the Olean Area Coalition for Peace and Justice protested the third anniversary of the Iraq war in downtown Olean on Monday. Some were members of the St. Bonaventure University community.
The Oleans Time Herald quotes one SBU student, Jessica Gunter, as saying, “The war is taking so many lives, not just our money. So many civilians are dying. I was down in New Orleans last week, and the money should be going down there. So many domestic issues need to be taken care of.”
