Manhattan Marchers Demonstrate Against War

Listen: Listen to the NPR News report.

As bombs fall in Iraq, a peace march down Broadway draws a major crowd. The anti-war movement shifts its emphasis from U.N. diplomacy to halting further bloodshed. "We decided we had to keep turning out," says a mother who brought her two small children to the march. "After the first blush of war is over, I think we'll see more people turn out." Hear NPR's Neal Conan and NPR's Robert Smith.
