A large-scale anti-war demonstration is planned for Washington, D.C., and other cities around the world this Saturday. The demonstrations are the work of the United for Peace and Justice Coalition and like-minded groups calling for a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq — and seeking to shift the focus from President Bush to Congress.

Judith LeBlanc, national co-chair of the U.P.J.C., talks with Melissa Block about the current state of the peace movement and the message demonstrators hope to send.
