(KSL News) Anti-war protest extended to several cities across the country, including here in Salt Lake. Several hundred people came to an anti-war rally downtown.

In a state with a red majority, they wanted their colors to be known and their voices to be heard.

The rally started at Pioneer Park where people donned their signs, and a man in a paper-mache President Bush costume addressed the crowd. After that, people marched to the Salt Lake City/County building for another rally.

Shortly into his speech, Salt Lake City mayor Rocky Anderson led the crowd in a chant.

Charlotte Mueller/ Attended rally: "We're in a state which is mostly republicans. We want them to hear what we feel, what we think about the war."

Wade Wheelington/ Attended rally: "I think it's a good thing to make people aware of what's going on. It gives two sides to every story."

Across the country, thousands more people protested the war in Iraq.
