Iraq: Stop the war in Iraq – Half a million demonstrate in NY city

There was a massive demonstration in New York City on 22 March. Reports vary, but estimates range from 200,000 to 500,000 anti-war participants at the protest.

Stop the war in Iraq. US.

Half a million march in NY City

We were able to march this time; the city had not allowed us to march during the 15 February protests. In fact the city’s grant of a march permit was seen as a victory for the anti-war movement. Still, there were about at least 20 reported arrests.

Socialist Alternative was on the march and rally. We marched with our banner and placards. We sold about 200 papers and sold "No Blood For Oil" T-shirts.
