Thousands of demonstrators marked the War in Iraq's fourth anniversary across the country and around the world.

Dozens showed up in front of Florida's old state Capitol, voicing their opinions on the war.

Members from both Code Pink for Woman and Veterans for Peace joined the anti-war protest, waving signs as cars passed by.

Protestors say the war is costing thousands of lives and billions of dollars.

Lydia Vicker, a member of Code Pink, said, "Part of what we do in Code Pink is try and show how much money could be spent if we didn't spend it on the war. It could go to affordable housing, health care, schools for children, clothes for children, to help people."

Demonstrators say they've gathered every Sunday in front of the old state Capitol since the start of the war.
