Blair students joined protestors as they marched against war in Iraq on Saturday, January 18th in Washington DC. The rally drew upwards of 100,000 people from across the US together in opposition to Bush's foreign policy.

Blair's Students for Global Responsibility (SGR) came out in force, stubbornly braving through the winter weather. "It was pretty cold, but really [successful] because they were a lot of people there," senior Joshua Turnham said.

SGR was proud of its strong presence at the rally. "SGR made a good showing…I hope it helps [prevent war]. It won't be the last [protest], I'm sure," senior Rachel Yood remarked.

Senior Morgan Pitts summed up the marchers feelings. He said, "It was an emotional outpouring against a tyrannical leader."
