On Saturday, September 15, 2007, the ANSWER Coalition, a progressive antiwar group, sponsored a Mass March and Die-In in Washington, D.C. Its purpose was to raise the consciousness of enough people in this country to stop the illegal and immoral Iraq War and to prevent the Bush-Cheney Gang from launching a war against Iran. The rally took place in Lafayette Park, just north of the White House, where a number of prominent speakers were heard. One of the speakers was Maryland-based activist Kevin Zeese, Director of Voters for Peace and Democracy Rising. He said: "President Bush is the boldest deceiver, calling a country that we invaded--'our ally.' The [Iraq] war was started on a pack of lies." See also, http://www.democracyrising.us
