( - Anti-war groups are revving up for the first anniversary of the Iraq war.

They're planning a March 14-15 march from Dover, Del., to Washington D.C. to "honor and mourn" the dead -- including U.S. troops and "the tens of thousands of Iraqi casualties."

At the White House, the activists said they will make a "plea" for the Bush administration to "start telling the truth, stop hiding the toll, and bring an end to this war."

The "Memorial Procession for Mourning and Truth" is being organized by the groups Military Families Speak Out; Veterans for Peace; Iraq Pledge of Resistance; and other organizations.

In a press release announcing the march, the activists promised that "casualty families" will be available for interviews at Dover Air Force Base.
