An estimated 7,000 protesters followed the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) during a march which started at the Denver Coliseum after a Rage Against the Machine concert and led all the way to the Pepsi Center where a near-violent standoff between police and protesters was narrowly avoided.  The march was led by the IVAW who made the simple demand to deliver a letter they wrote to the Democratic Party opposing the war in Iraq.  The conflict was finally diffused when police allowed a member of IVAW to cross police lines to deliver their letter which demanded immediate withdrawal of all occupying forces in Iraq; reparations for the human and structural damages Iraq has suffered, and stopping the corporate pillaging of Iraq so that their people can control their own lives and future; and full benefits, adequate healthcare (including mental health), and other supports for returning servicemen and women.
