The Iraq War: After 18 Years, the World Still Says No to War
Today we remember the Iraq War, a war that continues after 18 years with no end in sight.

More than 7,000 American service members have died in the war zones of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. ​
Hundreds of thousands more have been wounded in combat or died as a result of injuries sustained in the war zones.

Estimated Iraq War casualties range from 151,000 Iraqis to more than a million. Millions more Iraqis have been displaced from their homes or forced to flee Iraq.

The total costs of the Iraq War on the US economy exceed three trillion dollars.​ Eighteen years after President Bush invaded Iraq on March 19, 2003, the US remains at war.

The peace movement in Milwaukee and around the world has been active since before the war began, and remains active to this day, calling for the withdrawal of all US troops and an end to economic sanctions.

These 280 photos and one video represent 42 actions over the past 18 years, starting with the Dr. Martin Luther King Day peace event that filled City Hall in Milwaukee on January 18, 2003, and ending with a special stand for peace on March 20, 2021.

Most of these actions took place in Milwaukee, but they also include statewide, regional and national peace demonstrations in Madison, Chicago, New York, and Washington DC.

Thanks to Peace Action of Wisconsin, the End the Wars Coalition of Milwaukee, Veterans for Peace, Iraq Veterans Against the War, US Labor Against the War, United for Peace and Justice, and all the tireless activists working for an end to war.
