A week of protests to mark three years in Iraq

March 15 to 22 marks a nationwide week of protest to mark the third anniversary of the Iraq War, coordinated by United for Peace and Justice.

If you want to join in, check out the UFPJ directory. I'm attending the protests in Los Angeles this Saturday (starting at the corners of Hollywood & Vine). Apparently, the Oscar-winning director of "Crash" will be in the crowd. More importantly, so will tens of thousands of others.

But there are at least 400 more events planned across the country, and including candlelight vigils, die ins, and civil disobedience.
