I was doing my usual surfing last night and I found this:

Rally at White House on Sept 15th

Here is the PDF format of their flyer

Get Out of Iraq Now Flyer

This site states that Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey is holding a hearing on strategies for getting out of Iraq. This hearing will be held at Capitol Hill from 10am-1pm. Groups of organizers are calling for a rally in front of the White House at 5 p.m. in Lafayette Square Park.

There is another march on Washington planned in the month of September.

March on Washington Sept 24th-26th

Plans for this gathering:

Saturday, September 24
Massive March & Rally, Peace and Justice Festival, Operation Ceasefire Concert

Sunday, September 25
Interfaith Service, Training for Grassroots Lobby Day, Training for Mass Nonviolent Civil Disobedience, National Meeting for Counter-Recruitment

Monday, September 26
Grassroots Congressional Lobby Day &
Mass Nonviolent Civil Disobedience at the White House

As far as the rally scheduled for today, I have yet to see a single thing on the mainstream media. There could be a few reasons for this (a) overshadowed by the Presidential speech this evening (b) it never happened
I was actually surprised not to find this elsewhere on the board. Now the March on the 24th-26th, that I am looking forward to seeing. I'm interested in seeing how our gvmnt handles a massive orchestrated civil disobedience movement

If anyone here on the boards has anymore information, or media coverage on this, please update the thread.

Why is it every time I read about one of these, they refer to them as "Massive" or "GIAGOOOOONDOOOOOOO!"?

well I doubt they would have much turnout if they made it sound like they were hopingpeople would show up.

If people don't know about it they won't show up.

We don't have "liberal" media, we have state-run media. If They don't want us to know about it, the media's not going to tell us.

Well they showed a snippet of the Sept 24th protest. A 3 second clip showing police dragging protesters.

I guess it's better to show confrontation with police rather than show a gathering of what people are really asking for. Keeps people from going to the next one.

I'm sure ongoing coverage of Hurricane Rita completely over casted the showing of the protest.

...because if it said;

"Three of us are going to get together and protest the war you are all invited [but bring your own ]."

People just wouldn't turn up.

I think you'll find most things tend to boost up their viewpoint however it seems 300,000 people turned up and that's more than enough.

So did anyone here on the boards actually go to this protest?

Just curious to see how it was first hand.
