Peace march on Saturday...

Hanan Shawar, an activist with CodePink, takes part in a rally in Monterey, California, against the escalation of the war in Iraq.

Americans angered by Bush's plans for escalation will flood the streets of Washington on Saturday, January 27, in a massive national peace march organized by United For Peace and Justice.

During the Vietnam War more families were directly affected because of the military draft...and that would explain why there was more grassroots involvement in the anti-war movement. This time it would appear we are all too preoccupied to be bothered with any kind of involvement in anti-war demonstrations.
