Groups opposed to the war in Iraq and Afghanistan will hold a rally this evening.
The Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane, the Gonzaga University Justice Club, Progressive Democrats of America and others will be meeting at Trent and Hamilton at 5 p.m. to hear speeches, wave banners, march and do other things one might expect at a rally.
The location is a bit of a switch from the standard anti-war rallies, which usually either start or end at the federal Courthouse at Riverside and Monroe. It may also have a younger look, considering it's close to Gonzaga and the Riverpoint campuses.
Why today? It's the anniversary of the start of the war in Afghanistan.
