Protesters Send Message On War

by Christine Stuart

A group of protesters huddle outside U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman‘s Hartford office Thursday in the bitter cold to tell him they didn‘t appreciate his obstruction of a vote on a resolution to express the Senate’s opposition to the troop escalation in Iraq.

The letter from members of Americans Against Escalation in Iraq,,,, and Connecticut Citizens Action Group said, “We know that you do not agree with our position, but you need to know that an overwhelming majority of Connecticut residents and Americans from all over want this misguided war over now.”

Protesters who attempted to deliver the letter at around 4:45 p.m. were told Lieberman’s office closed at 4 p.m., but two staffers came out 15-minutes later to accept the letter on Lieberman’s behalf. They said he was in Washington but promised to deliver their message to the Senator.
