Huge rally against Iraq war

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Crowds opposed to the war in Iraq surged past the White House on Saturday, shouting "Peace now" in the largest anti-war protest in the nation's capital since the U.S. invasion.The rally stretched through the day and into the night, a marathon of music, speechmaking and dissent on the National Mall.Police Chief Charles H. Ramsey, noting that organizers had hoped to draw 100,000 people, said, "I think they probably hit that."

But of course i should be fair and say ...

A much smaller demonstration Saturday by military families supported administration policy in Iraq. About 150 to 200 demonstrators gathered on a corner of Pennsylvania Avenue between the Capitol and the White House.
