Proving better late than never, more than 200 protesters tramped around Minneapolis Thursday to protest the Iraq war's fifth anniversary, the Minnesota Daily reports. This particular protest was more than a full week after people all over the country came out with their signs, masks, and chants to take a stand against the war.

Sixteen people were arrested at the Minneapolis protest, including a handful of University of Minnesota students, after they entered a National Guard recruiting office and "[took] over the second floor and hallway of the building," the police said.
