Both McCain and Obama are pro-war candidates. "Some people tell us don't protest - go register voters. And we tell them, to vote for who?" says Jorge Mujica, immigrant rights leader. "I firmly believe that the greatest threat to the movement for progressive change since JFK," notes Jonathan Hutto, Sr., author of Anti-War Soldier. "Barack Obama if he wins is going to bring more business to these [war industry] companies...he's gong to keep in place the major outposts of the occupation to bring money to the contractors," warns Jeremy Scahill, investigative journalist. Includes scenes from No War on Iran protest in Chicago.
