Anti-war advocates protest war in Yakima

YAKIMA, Wash -- There were only a few out Sunday, but they had the support of many.

About ten members of the Yakima Valley Peace and Advocacy Network spent the afternoon protesting the war in Iraq at the corner of 16th Ave and Nob Hill Ave.

Their message was two fold: Bring home the troop and end the war. Its a message more Americans are agreeing with.

A Newsweek poll for MSNBC shows that over two-thirds of Americans are against the surge of troops in Iraq. The same poll shows that 46% saying the want to see American troops "home as soon as possible."

No one got out of their cars to walk with the protesters on Nob Hill, but hundreds honked in support, not of the war, but of the protesters.
