Tens of Thousands of anti-war activists descended on Washington, D.C. this past weekend to express our deep commitment to ending the illegal occupation of Iraq, stop the meaningless death of our military and end the killing of innocent people in Iraq and to head off a war with Iran. All of us spent thousands, if not a total of a million dollars to get to Washington. People from all States, various organizations, and those who have never attended a protest before came. An honest cross-section of this Nation appeared to express how disgusted they were with the leadership of this Country and the direction we are headed. It was truly a moving site, and brought me to tears.
