Although pro-US protests in Korea made it to the front page of the NY Times, the real story is a massive anti-war protest in LA — the largest since the vietnam war! — k

Thousands of people protesting a looming U.S.-led war against Iraq marched through downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, with many chanting,”We want peace!”

According to police, the crowd numbered between 5,000 and 7,000. Many wore their opinions, such as "No War" or "Don’t Cut Medicare for Bombs and Missiles," on T-shirts, buttons and baseball caps. Organizers estimated the crowd at 15,000, said Karin Pally, who helped put on the event.”
