Granny War Protest

More than a dozen grandmothers have joined anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan to mark the Fourth of July holiday with a rally and fast in the nation's capital.

Members of the Grannies for Peace Brigade were arrested last fall in New York's Times Square as they tried to enlist in the armed services.

The group's Carol Huston says they're making the point that the U.S. should be out of Iraq.

At a rally yesterday, the grandmothers chanted, "Move on or we move on over you."

Sheehan and others also plan a hunger strike outside of the White House, and have promised to maintain a daylight vigil across the street from the White House through mid-August.

Sheehan says she and others also are prepared to continue the protest near President Bush's Texas ranch.
