from Colorado Indymedia:
Iraq Veterans Against the War member Shalom Keller speaks Aug. 27, while Jason Hurd raises his fist, at a march to end the war in Iraq. The group and its supporters drew a crowd of at least 4,000 to march from the Denver Coliseum to the Pepsi Center, where veterans held their ground against a wall of riot-gear-clad police. Despite a tense moment in which police readied tear gas canisters, a representative from Obama’s campaign acknowledged receipt of a letter from IVAW, leading the veterans to about face.

When the formation of Iraq veterans did an about face, the wall of riot-gear-clad police put away their tear gas canisters. Ominous storm clouds parted. It was an unexpected victory for the Iraq Veterans Against the War and a relief to everyone near the DNC entrance to the Pepsi Center.
