ANSWER Marches on Rumsfeld

Powell, Sara
September 2004
Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;Sep2004, Vol. 23 Issue 7, p80
The June 5, 2004 march through the streets of Northwest Washington D.C., from the White House to Donald Rumsfeld's house, was smaller than some of the demonstrations that preceded the U.S. invasion of Iraq. A number of speakers expressed their outrage that the administration that had ignored their popular message that Iraq was not a threat, now ignored their message that the U.S. had caused more than enough damage and should cut its losses. The long list of speakers included Act Now To Stop War and End Racism activist regulars Brian Becker, Chuck Kaufman, Larry Holmes, and Caneisha Mills. Other important speakers were on hand to share the pain the war on Iraq had inflicted on them.
