Anti-War Groups Seek Breakthrough Moment

Next Monday marks four years since the United States attacked Iraq. Anti-war groups are planning to protest the conflict over the next several days, at events in Washington, D.C., and around the country.

But the anti-war movement, while enjoying broader support than anti-war protests of the Vietnam era, is struggling to reach mainstream America.

Activists are organizing Web campaigns to pressure members of Congress. And Move On, a leader in the anti-war movement, has its own political action committee. Apparently, marching on the Pentagon with flowers is considered to be passe.
