Protestors Call for End to Iraq War
About 200 anti-war protestors filled Post Office Park in the Old Port on April 28th to call for and end to the war in Iraq, and to call on Maine senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins to withdraw their support for the Bush administration’s Iraq policy.

Former Maine congressman Tom Andrews was the main speaker at the rally and called on the Maine senators to have a “Margaret Chase Smith moment” and repudiate the war. Smith was a Maine senator in the 1950’s who stood up to Communist-hunting Wisconsin senator Joseph McCarthy. Andrews called the Iraq war a war of “arrogance, ignorance, and incompetence.”
