Transcript Stop the world. Anti-war sentiment spread to UH as campus organizations and professors spearheaded a rally at Butler Plaza in front of M.D. Anderson Memorial Library. — Johnny Kow c E o And America goes to war... 0) RIGHT: Clashing views. Protestors of the United States' war in Iraq were quickly greeted by another of the country's freedoms: the right to disagree. Some U.S. supporters crashed the demonstration to let their voices be heard. — Pin Lim OPPOSITE PAGE: Light the way. Although Houston wasn't home to some of the country's more visible demonstrations, people did let their opinions be known, in whatever way they saw fit. Here, people hold a candlelight vigil at a peace rally. — Nathan Lindstrom story BY BRIDGET BROVN Battle lines were drawn between UH students supporting the war with Iraq and those against it, and tempers flared at several protests not only on campus, but across the city. However, most went in a peaceful manner. In March, students either rallied around the flag and stood behind President George W. Bush in hope that he'd make the right decision or they blasted the message of "bring our boys home." On March 20, in front of the M.D. Anderson Memorial Library, a group 300 students rallied of a sunny afternoon to share their views on the war. The rally was intended to be an anti-war demonstration, but a group calling itself "pro- U.S.A." showed up to present a different view. "I think people need to realize that our brothers and sisters are fighting for the United States. Whether we believe in the war or not, we need to show them support," senior Ernest Salas said. Such disagreements occurred across the country, where pro- and anti-war sentiments were split down the middle. "I feel that the war is ultimately wrong," junior sculpture major Lisa Reznicek said on the day of the rally. "Not only am I here today, but I am going to peace rides and attending other events across Houston." The Houston Global Awareness group spearheaded several protests throughout the month at the Kellog Brown and Root Tower in downtown Houston. People rallied from 5 to 8 p.m. Fridays at the Mecom Fountain, where Montrose Street meets Main Street. Protests like these were not uncommon, and on many days while cruising the streets of Houston people say sign holders and chanters on the street. "It was the largest day in history — about 6,000 people in downtown," Gigi Kahdavian said. "We marched down to Allen Parkway to protest more. "This is great time for Houston. There is a great sense of brotherhood in the air. Just about everyone wants one main goal — to pull out of Iraq and end this horrible war." The war presented a unique opportunity for students to follow in their parents' footsteps and re-create their own 1960s protests and rallies. But it wasn't just for show. Students exercised their right to free speech by echoing the previous generation's stance of vocal disagreement. "I feel proud that I can say that even if we don't stop this country from going to war at least we tried to do something about it," junior psychology major Shireen O'Conner said. ammrMrniMTrnmim^ mMi£=Hi^Mi
