Rain dampens, but doesn't stop anti-war protests

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A cold rain didn't stop protesters from demonstrating in Oklahoma City against the third anniversary of the start of the Iraq War.

About 15 people held signs with slogans like ``Honk for Peace'' and ``Troops Home Now!!!'' as the winds gusted and the precipitation fell in northwest Oklahoma City yesterday.

A couple of people stood on Campus Corner in Norman with signs also.

Blanchard resident Janine Sotomayor is a veteran of Persian Gulf War. Sotomayor says the weather wasn't the best, but the troops in Iraq face far worse conditions.

The Peace House organized today's protest in Oklahoma City.

Director Nathaniel Batchelder said he'd hoped more people would come, but was happy the group raised some awareness.
