This is viewer supported news

Over 2,000 New York City high school and college students took to the streets yesterday to protest US war preparations for Iraq.

Meanwhile, students at the New School protested against New School President Bob Kerrey’s role in the Committee for the Liberation of Iraq. The Committee is a White House-approved group formed to press for the toppling of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Other members on the Committee are former Secretary of State George P. Shultz, the Teamsters leader James P. Hoffa and the former House speaker, Newt Gingrich. Senators John McCain, Republican of Arizona, and Joseph I. Lieberman, Democrat of Connecticut, are expected to be the group’s honorary Congressional co-chairmen.

We are joined by Sarah Grey, one of the New School students involved in the protest.

Guest:

  • Sarah Grey, New School student.
