United for Peace and Justice

United for Peace and Justice

From The New York Times (posted at 5:52 p.m., ET today):

On bicycles, on foot, and some with their children in tow, hundreds of thousands of people moved through areas of Manhattan today in rallies or mass demonstrations, carrying messages against war and the Bush administration.

In the largest demonstration ever at a political convention, people swarmed through the midtown area of Manhattan in a march organized by United for Peace and Justice, passing by Madison Square Garden, where this week’s Republican National Convention starts on Monday. At the height of the march, it took more than an hour to move one block.

7th Ave in Manhattan, NYC: Sunday, August 29th.
