Speakers at Lafayette Park
Dion Haynes reports from Lafayette Park:
Thousands of people of all ages, races and backgrounds continue to cheer as speakers take the stage to protest the war.
"I resigned against this war 4 1/2 years ago," said former Col. Ann Wright, who left her post in 2003 to protest the war. "Not one thing has changed...we've got to stop the war. Stop it now."
Malik Rahim, founder of Common Ground Collective, a hurricane-relief group in New Orleans, said: "In 1963 on this day, Sept. 15, was the Birmingham bombing. Four little girls in a house of worship were tragically killed. It's time for the people of this nation to take it back. Tell those who caused this heartache and injustice, 'No more. Let's stand for peace.'"
Brian Becker, national coordinator of ANSWER Coalition said:"Every move by the government to repress and suppress the voice of the people will be answered by the people mobilizing like never before. Bush speaks in our name but not with our consent."
