The liberal ‘monster’ awoke and raised its head today on the Austin Peay State University Campus, growling its way to awareness a bit earlier than planned due to a scheduling conflict in time and place.

They were a small group with a loud voice, large banners, small signs and handouts opposing the War in Iraq and the assault on civil liberties.
