200 take to streets to protest Afghan war

  • Updated: December 5, 2009 - 6:54 PM

Among the signs displayed was one declaring the war in "Barackastan," and another declaring Obama a "Wrong Way War President" on a sign that contained upside-down campaign signs.

About 200 protesters, many of them disenchanted supporters of President Obama, demonstrated in south Minneapolis Saturday afternoon against the escalating war in Afghanistan.

"What do we want?" they chanted. "Troops out! When do we want it? NOW!"

They gathered along the sidewalk along E. Lake Street at Hiawatha Avenue, watched by Minneapolis police officers, three on horseback, across the street.

They handed out leaflets to motorists, some of who honked horns in support.

Among the signs they displayed was one declaring the war in "Barackastan" waged by "Obombya."
