7 war protestors arrested

About 80 War Resisters League members marched in a solemn procession from the World Trade Center to the Stock Exchange on Wall St. Wednesday, carrying mock body bags in protest of the Iraq war. Five of them held a sit-in in front of the Stock Exchange’s entrance and were arrested for disorderly conduct. Two others were arrested, one when he crossed a police line. The War Resisters protested at the Stock Exchange because they feel some of the corporations listed on the Exchange — such as Halliburton, Lockheed Martin and Titan — are “war profiteers,” and because these and other corporations contribute money to both the Republican and Democratic parties. Although the protest occurred the day after the election it was planned before because both President Bush and Sen. Kerry supported the war resolution.
