Anti-war coalition plans major protests

Anti-war activists are planning demonstrations in Washington, Los Angeles and San Francisco this September to urge the administration to bring U.S. troops home.

Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER) say they hope a long lead-up to the Sept. 24 protests will generate more interest. Brian Becker is national coordinator of the Washington-based coalition, which has more than 500 anti-war groups as members. He said the public is growing weary of the war.

ANSWER will hold teach-ins this summer that aim to bring together organizers, religious and academic leaders, and elected officials.
