Jan. 18, 2003 - Not Tea Parties

By jimstaro - Posted on 19 January 2011

From This Week in History: Peace Buttons

In frigid temperatures, 500,000 converged on Washington, D.C.
There were also joined by many more elsewhere around the world to oppose the threatened U.S. war on Iraq.

This was the largest U.S. peace demonstration since the Vietnam era.

<---Anti-war protesters march past the U.S. Capitol during the start of an anti-war protest that will culminate by a march to the Washington Naval Yard.

Egyptian riot police and anti-war demonstrators face off in Cairo, Egypt. Banners at top read, " Iraq . . . Another war for oil and American supremacy."--->

<---Pakistani peace activists hold a rally in Karachi.

Crowds estimated at 80,000 fill the civic center of San Francisco, California--->
