Tens of millions of people took to the streets over the weekend in some 600 cities around the world. They marched and rallied and demonstrated to protest the Bush Administration’s plans to attack on Iraq.

In New York City, organizers say half a million rallied. In San Francisco, a quarter of a million marched.

London, Madrid, and Barcelona each saw over a million people march; organizers say over three million marched in Rome. The London Guardian is reporting Italian state television did not broadcast the protest live because it would put "undue pressure on politicians."

Hundreds of other protests were held spread across every continent in the world. Sites included Australia, Johannesburg, Tel Aviv, Syria, Tokyo, Bangladesh, South Korea, Hong Kong, Thailand, Puerto Rico, Brazil, East Timor, India, and even the South Pole.

We recorded these live reports from around the world:
