Anti-War Demonstrations on Saturday

"'We'll be the checks and balances on this out-of-control criminal government,' Sheehan, who has become the anti-war movement's best-known face, told the group gathered at the Ellipse, a park behind the White House. In Los Angeles, about 15,000 people protested peacefully, while thousands more marched in San Francisco and in London urging an end to military action in Iraq nearly 30 months after an invasion ousted Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. The crowds in Washington swelled through the day, and by late afternoon organizers of the anti-war demonstration said 300,000 people had assembled -- exceeding an anticipated 100,000."
