I was unable to find anything in the media on this even, and even a Google newsgroup search didn't even show an announcement of this event, so I am somewhat flummoxed as to how this came to be.

That's a perfect example of how stupid the libs/socialists are. They tell all their people to gather via underground communications, which means nobody that they're trying to convince has a clue their "rally" is even happening. This probably won't even get any news coverage outside of the immediate area, which means it may as well have never happened. *snicker*

Not that would have had one iota of effect even if every network had carried the whole thing live. People don't like to listen to obnoxious, unwashed trust-fund kids whining and moaning.

Big one in Central Park today too. I heard about it by word of mouth only Thursday evening.

Also saw a teenage girl walking through a street fair today with a sign around her neck saying "Bush: Why Don't You Choke on Another Pretzel?" She must go to one of those compassionate Muslim schools.

bones...

I am sure this march was a "spontaneous" outpouring of patriots concerned for the American way.

It's been a big peacenik week...they're getting hysterical over the possibility of war, and elections coming up. They will probably continue their antics for a couple more weeks. I could handle it if it were just the anti-war message, but their whole agenda is tainted by their anti-American, socialist, and just plain contrary pasts. They dropped out, tuned in, turned on and even 3000 dead Americans won't turn them off. I find peaceniks disgusting! </ end of rant >

On the AP wire...

Thousands rally for peace in San Francisco

(10-06) 15:59 PDT SAN FRANCISCO (AP) --

A sweaty throng of thousands of anti-war protesters jammed the city's Union Square on Sunday, beating drums, hoisting signs and proclaiming their opposition to war with Iraq.

It was one of dozens of anti-war rallies across the country organized by the Not in Our Name Project, a grassroots group opposing a range of Bush administration actions. Demonstrations also were held in New York, Chicago, Portland, Ore., and many smaller communities.

Marchers used a thesaurus of adjectives to describe their disenchantment, calling the president a "warmonger," "racist," "irresponsible," and "stoopid."

Women in designer jeans and high-heeled shoes marched next to students in tie-dyed T-shirts and Birkenstocks. The driver of a cable car surrounded by the throng clanged his bell in time to pulsating reggae music, joined by the honking of dozens of trapped taxis.

"We don't want war. It's clearly for fabricated reasons," said Taliya Ansari of Hercules, Calif., who came with her family after hearing of the rally at her mosque. "We don't want people to die. (Iraq is) not doing anything to us."

For the president, the question seemed to be not if, but when, to wage war against Iraq. Stumping in Manchester, N.H., for Senate candidate John Sununu, Bush didn't mention the 50 demonstrators protesting outside, or the gatherings around the country. But he reiterated his stance that the United States must disarm Iraq to protect American lives.

And in his weekend radio address, Bush urged Congress to give him authority to remove Saddam and deal quickly with Iraq's arsenal of chemical and biological weapons.

"Delay, indecision and inaction ... could lead to massive and sudden horror" for the United States, Bush said.

Still, demonstrators appealed for restraint before the United States enters another war.

San Francisco police added several dozen officers to handle the crowd, which was feisty but peaceful, waving their signs before a backdrop of Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Tiffany & Co., Levi's and Macy's.

"This is a country full of people that won't let the government start this immoral war in our name," rally organizer Tanya Mayo yelled from a stage swathed in peace banners, blue balloons and the names of victims of past wars.
