Seattle 12 Noon at Judkins Park. Throughout Washington and Oregon, organizing is underway to bring people to Seattle. People will gather in Judkins Park for a rally and then march to Occidental Park. The march is planned to go through communities in Seattle so the antiwar message gets out far and wide.


San Francisco 11am at the Civic Center. Several feeder marches from various parts of the city will join people from throughout northern California at the Civic Center for a pre-march rally. The main march will proceed to Dolores Park, where there will be another rally and a Peace and Justice Convergence. The convergence will feature activities designed to help educate people about a number of critical issues and bring them into greater involvement. A massive number of groups in the Bay Area and around the region have endorsed the demonstration and more are expected.


Los Angeles 12 Noon at Olympic & Broadway. Following a march to the Federal Building, participants will be asked to be part of a die-in to represent the more than 1 million Iraqis and almost 4,000 US servicepeople killed in the war.


New York 12 noon at Union Square. The labor movement, college and high school students, and community groups from around New York State and northern New Jersey are mobilizing for a massive march and rally to end the war. The march will end at a Peace and Justice Fair, where there will be opportunities for people to find out how they can become more involved in the ongoing work of many organizations.


Boston 12 Noon at Boston Common. Endorsed by 95 organizations throughout New England, including the AFL-CIO state federations in Vermont and Connecticut, the demonstration will feature noted historian Howard Zinn, John Olsen (President, Connecticut AFL-CIO), Son of Nun (political hip-hop), David Rovics (topical folk) and representatives from veterans and military families organizations.


A caravan led by Iraq Veterans Against the War will make its way from Arlington Cemetery to Philadelphia, with stops in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Delaware. At each stop, a "coffin," bearing the count of U.S. military deaths from that state, and an estimate of the Iraqi casualties from a particular province, will be loaded on a vehicle to join the caravan. In Camden, NJ, participants in a morning rally will march across the Ben Franklin Bridge to Philadelphia, and on to Independence Mall. In Philadelphia, a Human Chain for Peace will extend 36 blocks, followed by a march to the rally at Independence Mall.


Chicago 1:30pm at Union Park. More than 130 groups and three members of Congress are already endorsing the midwest action. Peace trains and buses are coming from Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, and at least 30 African-American churches on Chicago's South Side are bringing busloads of people to the march and rally.


Orlando, FL 12:30pm at Lake Eola Park. Endorsements are pouring in, and people are coming from South Carolina, Georgia, parts of Alabama, and from all over Florida. Since national marches are usually so far away and such a major trip for people in Florida, folks are responding with a lot of excitement to this call to Orlando.


New Orleans 2pm at Washington Square. After a rally in Washington Square, the march will proceed through the French Quarter. People from Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana are joining this event. In addition to calling for an end to the war in Iraq, this march and rally will address the racial injustice on the Gulf Coast, in New Orleans and Jena, Louisiana.


Jonesborough is home to Aerojet Ordnance Tennessee, one of the largest producers of Depleted Uranium (DU) weapons. That fact, and its central location, led regional organizers to decide this was an ideal location for an October 27th demonstration in the southeast. The day will begin with a rally at the Courthouse steps where the mayor of Jonesborough will welcome the peacemakers.


Salt Lake City 11am at the Utah State Capitol. People from Idaho, Colorado, Montana, and around Utah will come together in a major march and rally in Salt Lake City. An Iraq War veteran will give an opening address before the march. The event culminates at Washington Square, where nationally recognized speakers will address the gathering. The Mayor of Salt Lake City, Rocky Anderson, is supporting this effort.

Dear Anonymous Naysayer this is Rose Mountain, to answer your question-Do I ever feel like I'm wasting my time since Bush is not yet impeached & US still in Iraq. The simple answer is NO. We have too much work to do, our democracy is paralyzed. We don't control the vote machines, the media censors & distorts about 99% of all types of news & investigations, the 3 branches of Government no longer exist, Congress & the Courts are mostly controlled by the Executive Branch. But the wonderful part is that our democracy is thriving underground, more people than ever before trying to save our democracy, thousands of high-level whistleblowers & leaked documents & whistleblowers from every level of government & courageous investigative journalists & people from a spectrum of professions doing investigations, while millions of We The People spread the truth. And people in other countries helping us.

I'm laughing at Anon's very stupid comment. And laughing more that Anon had to do it as Anon. Thanks Anon for the laughter! Rose Mountain - you are NOT wasting your time. Anon is employing a despicable King George tactic like he is again with the health coverage for the children. The strength of a democracy is in an informed and educated populace. Good thing Broowaha is not owned by Murdoch or any of the other Republican perverts so the truth can get out in spite of all their attempts to double-speak it.

- too bad the gossip articles get way more comments and ratings than good stuff like this here. I'm also laughing at the Anon comment. Right, let's just shut up and sit down. Hey, isn't that what King George's daddy told us to do when he was the Pres? Now that's democracy Bush family style.

I know I'm supposed to be interested in this kind of stuff. I try. I really do try. Buuuuuut, I so love those gossip articles! "Impeach Bush, it's the American thing to do." I'll write my representatives about that as soon as I finish reading all the latest gossips stories in Broowaha. However, if Anon leaves any more of their asinine comments I'm still laughing over, I'll have to start reading these stories more. Really good articles tho. Keep on writing them Rose Mountain.

Hey Pal (Anon), you are way over the line into abuse and your comments of irrational gibberish and random rants are smelly flatulence. How about backing off a couple of lightyears? Rose, write the hell whatever you damn well please. BrooWaha IS Citizen's Journalism. I like to read your articles.

To the Stealth Anons and El G who may very well be one and the same due to syntax similarity: You both suck and blow way over the line. You're abusive rather than constructive. You don't like it, don't read it. Others of us do like it and do read it. Many of us are Progressives. Get over it.

I lifted this wonderful comment from Venditto (NY BrooWaha) “people who wish to remain anonymous yet voice opinions are universally accepted as cowards. Just so you're aware.”
