They've been there from 4:30-5:30 every Wednesday for 230 weeks now. Since January 14, 2004, members of Grandmothers Against the War, joined by members of Veterans for Peace, have kept up a witness for peace alongside Rockefeller Center in New York City.
Half a block away, Prometheus floats over a bar full of tourists under a sea of flags.
But these folks have a simple message.
"The surge has failed. It's a civil war over there. Bring them home alive!" Seems like a good message.
