Baghdad, October 26, 2002

The Iraq Peace Team, a collection of anti-war international activists coordinated by the Chicago-based Voices in the Wilderness, holds a candlelight vigil outside the offices of the U.S. Interests Section in the Polish Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq. The vigil was organized in solidarity with anti-war demonstrators marching in Washington D.C. and other cities across the United States. The eight Americans currently in Baghdad with Iraq Peace Team violate a U.S. law, which restricts American citizens from traveling to Iraq. If prosecuted, they may face penalties of up to 10 years in prison and fines of $1 million.
