ABC News’ Teddy Davis Reports: Anger with Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., over the Iraq war has bubbled up again from the activist group, Code Pink. 

Five members of Code Pink with signs that read ‘No War’ were in attendance at the legislative-political conference of the Communications Workers of America being held in Washington.

Prior to the protest, the members stood quietly in the hotel ball room for the speeches of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C.

With Clinton’s speech approaching, CWA began to fear that they were going to disrupt her speech so hotel security was asked to speak with them.

The code pink members broke into a peace chant with some of them complaining that "this was all about Hillary Clinton."

A small group of CWA members supporting the protestors began to chant "let them stay". A larger group of CWA members began to chant "Go see Bush."

Prior to Clinton’s speech, Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., spoke before Clinton and acknowledged the protestors saying that "they are with them."
