Chioke Perry lies in the street at Marietta Street and Centennial Olympic Park Drive as part of a "die in" today to mark the 6th anniversary of the start of the Iraq war. Perry was one of about 100 people who marched from Woodruff Park to the CNN building led by Iraq war veterans to protest the war in Iraq. The march ended with the throwing of shoes at a Bush effigy while the crowd chanted "this is for the widows and orphans of those killed in Iraq" the same words of those uttered by the Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at Bush during his last visit to Iraq. "The war is illegal" said Iraq were veteran Jason Hurd who was one of the vets who led the march "it is not a war its an occupation."
