Tallahassee, Florida-A group of people rallied outside Florida's Capitol Building, protesting the war in Afghanistan.

The group of about a dozen people, says it is calling for a removal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan. The group held the protest Sunday, which marks the 11th anniversary of the start of the war in Afghanistan.

"A few dozen of the thousands of people we've killed in Afghanistan are associated at all with 9-11 or terrorism. The people who we are killing in Afghanistan are being killed because they're just in the wrong place at the wrong time or they're resisting an invader," says protester, Tom Baxter.

As part of the protest, the group read the names of the men and women from Florida who've died fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
