D.C. Orders Removal of Anti-War Posters

Officials in Washington D.C. are reportedly ordering The ANSWER Coalition to remove several hundred posters announcing the September 15 march on Washington. The protest is timed to coincide with the release of a report the White House is preparing regarding "progress" in Iraq. Authorities say the posters must be removed because the adhesive used to display the posters doesn't meet city standards. Sarah Sloan, the staff coordinator for the coalition doesn't agree.
"This is a definitely a calculated political move aimed at disrupting the demonstration, which has been organised on a day when the world's eyes will be on Washington for the Petraeus report," she said.
