San Francisco Site For Huge Anti-War Protest

By the tens of thousands, peace activists are making their way to San Francisco in preparation for today´s anti-war demonstration.

Fearing a potential showdown with Iraq, demonstrators will be packing San Francisco-bound buses from Los Angeles, Nevada and Oregon to speak out against the possibility of an impending war.

The event was expected to draw at least as many people as attended the October 26th rally, which police estimated at

42,000 people.

San Francisco´s demonstration will coincide with other anti-war protests occurring across the United States – the largest expected to be in Washington D.C. San Francisco police have spent the last two weeks preparing more than 300 officers to staff today´s event.
