Interesting article:

http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/03/08/sprj.irq.war.rallies/index.html

highlights (some quoted outright, some paraphrased):

Alice Walker, author of "The Color Purple" arrested with 26 others in a DC anti-war march.

Actress Janeane Garofalo has a good quote, "Silence does not equal patriotism. Obedience is not the American way." Also, Garofalo, who spoke at the rally in Malcolm X Park, said she was not sure whether such demonstrations could change the path she fears the United States is heading down but that it was important to speak out nonetheless.

Pope John Paul II said this week that he did not think war with Iraq would be legally or morally justified. He called for a peaceful solution to disarming Iraq.


However, the US is in the DMZ at this point. I'll be surprised if we don't start the main attack (as opposed to the bombing we've been doing in the south for a while now) within the next few days.
