2,500 U.S. Troops Killed… And Counting

On June 16th, US Veterans For Peace, Methodists United For Peace and other individuals held a vigil in Santa Cruz to mark 2,500 U.S. troops killed in Iraq and countless dead Iraqis. People held banners and peace flags in front of the town clock before marching down Pacific Avenue. We were joined mid-march by Hare Krishnas that had been chanting and dancing on the corner of Soquel. The march paused at Laurel and Pacific before returning to the plaza by the post office for a final peace circle.
