    Default US Media Wh*res Ignore Gigantic AntiWar Protests

    Given that the whores of the US media giants - from mainstream TV and newspapers, through to Yahoo online, did their best to ignore and under-report the massive antiwar protests held across the US on Saturday 24th..
    I figure its useful to show the 'other' America, that CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox and others are not letting the world see..

    At least 300 000 people marched (and nearly surrounded) the White House in Washington - and another very large demo took place in San Francisco, with up to 50 000 people taking part.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. PROTEST DRAWS MORE THAN 300,000

    WHITE HOUSE SURROUNDED BY A SEA
    OF PROTESTERS IN FOUR-HOUR LONG MARCH

    Three hundred thousand people marched through the streets of Washington
    and surrounded the White House on Saturday, in one of the largest U.S.
    demonstrations to date against the war in Iraq.

    Initiated by the A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism)
    Coalition, the protest was endorsed by thousands of organizations.

    "The massive turnout today shows the depth and breadth of opposition to
    the war in Iraq," said Brian Becker, national coordinator for the
    A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition. "The anti-war sentiment is now clearly the majority
    sentiment in the country."

    The morning of the demonstration, train and subway stations in D.C.
    were jammed as more than 1,000 buses from over 300 cities - including from
    New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, Detroit, Chicago,
    Cleveland, Atlanta, Birmingham, Charlotte, Gulfport, Mississippi; Eau
    Claire, Wisconsin; Des Moines, Iowa and elsewhere - arrived in the city for
    the massive protest.

    The rally featured such speakers as former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey
    Clark, Cindy Sheehan, actress Jessica Lange, British Parliamentarian
    George Galloway, civil rights activist Mahdi Bray, Congresswoman Cynthia
    McKinney, Reverend Al Sharpton, Anita Dennis, mother of Iraq war
    veteran/resister; human rights attorney Lynne Stewart, A.N.S.W.E.R. national
    coordinator Brian Becker, civil rights attorney Mara
    Verheyden-Hilliard, Elias Rashmawi, National Council of
    Arab Americans; Gloria LaRiva, National Committee to Free the Five:
    Peta Lindsay, A.N.S.W.E.R. Youth & Student Coordinator; and many more.

    The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition is the national organization that has
    organized all of the large-scale antiwar protests in Washington DC since
    September 2001, which have cumulatively brought over 1 million people into
    the streets of DC. September 24 represented a broad show of unity among
    thousands of antiwar and social justice groups in the U.S.
