March 19 was the seventh anniversary of the start of the Iraq War. Members of the Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition, a local anti-war group, celebrated the occasion by dropping nearly a dozen banners around Atlanta protesting against the continuation of the war.

The banners read, "Troops Out Of Iraq Now," "Not One More Death Not One More Dollar," "The Iraq War Seven Years Too Long," and "Iraq War Death Toll: Civilians: 1,366,350 Troops: 4,384."

"We wanted to remind folks that while we are in our economic crisis, literally, everyday, millions and millions and millions of dollars, $720 million a day, are being stolen from our communities to pay for this needless war, " said Tim Franzen, a spokesperson for the Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition.
