ABSTRACT
On October 25, 2003 International Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER) and United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) united at the Washington Monument in the national capital to demand an end to the U.S. occupation of Iraq, and that American troops be brought home. About 100,000 diverse Americans turned out to listen to a number of speakers, including presidential candidate Al Sharpton, former Attorney General Ramsey Clark, representatives of Military Families Speak Out. Joining Americans who rallied and marched in Washington D.C. and thousands more who marched in San Francisco, were people in some 40 countries around the world, representing almost every continent.
