Cindy Sheehan at press conference for the D.C. protest
Buses are coming to the D.C. protest from NYC, Boston, Chicago, the midwest, and many other cities and towns. Ditto for the S.F. and L.A. protests, buses are coming to them from hundreds of miles away too.
By now, the ANSWER Coalition has distributed at least 300,000 flyers, ten of thousands of posters and stickers, and done outreach nationwide. It’s looking like the protests this weekend will be sizable. People are angry about the war, they want it to end. Soldiers too. They will be there and leading the D.C. march, as well as speaking from the podium.
The March on the Pentagon will not only be very large, it is drawing together people who have never participated in any demonstration before. Active duty soldiers, soldiers’ families, Iraq war veterans and other veterans are mobilizing and will form the front contingent.
