According to CNN, over 200,000 people protested US plans to invade Iraq at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC on Saturday.

And in San Francisco, police gave a preliminary estimate of 42,000 but organizers said from 80,000 to 100,000 people took part in the march and rally at City Hall.

Rallies were also staged in cities across the country from New York to Boston to Madison, Wisconsin. Today on Democracy Now we hear from historian Howard Zinn, activist Medea Benjamin and others who are saying “No!” to war.

Tape:
