Pre-emptive antiwar rally

The week's news at a glance.

Washington, D.C.

Some 100,000 people marched peacefully on the White House last week to protest a potential invasion of Iraq. It was the largest antiwar demonstration here since Vietnam, said police. “It absolutely shows that when George Bush says America speaks with one voice, and it’s his voice, he’s wrong,” said an organizer. Simultaneous protests took place in cities around the world. In San Francisco, 42,000 people demonstrated. Tens of thousands more gathered in Rome, London, Tokyo, and elsewhere. One D.C. protester said the rally was better than those of the ’60s. “Here I’m not being spit on, people aren’t throwing tomatoes at me, and Joan Baez isn’t singing,” said Dot Magargal, 77.
