Update: Thousands turned out on March 24 to call for
an immediate end to the war and to bring the troops
home now. In a boisterous and lively march and
demonstration, nearly 5,000 people took to Boston's
streets uniting labor, peace, antiwar, community and
many left-wing traditions. Inspired by committed and
talented antiwar musicians and spoken work
performers, sharing values with 7 Bandstand speakers
and a host of open mike presenters, the rally became
a march that wound its way out of Boston Common,
over Beacon Hill, through Government Center, to
Faneuil Hall, across Washington Street, through
Downtown Crossing and finally back to the Common
where they were met with stirring lyrics of ¡Presente!
The latter reminding folks that just as we have to
end the war in Iraq, so to do we have face up to the
challenges at home.
