Organizers counted 120 activists holding signs and "shivering for peace" this afternoon, at the weekly Prospect for Peace observance north of I-74 in Champaign. The observance, at Prospect and Marketview Streets, has been a weekly event for almost a year. More than 80 people attended last week and the week before. Today's demonstrators included parents with children, high school and college students, senior citizens, and even a dog. Despite temperatures in the 30s and a chilly wind, participants were cheered by favorable responses from the vast majority of motorists traversing the city's busiest intersection.
