Actress Darryl Hannah, center, and Santa Monica activist John Quigley, right, were on the frontline of the October 28 Hollywood anti-war protest, initiated by the national A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism). Thousands of people gathered in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York to “Stop the War on Iraq – Bring the Troops Home Now.” Speakers in Hollywood included Vietnam veteran Ron Kovic; Indian activist Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi; California Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero; Gold Star mother Cindy Sheehan; and National Lawyers Guild-LA Executive Director Jim Lafferty. The energetic crowd gathered at Hollywood and Vine and marched to the CNN building, which organizers say symbolizes the corporate media that have not given adequate voice to the anti-war movement. photo by Margaret Molloy
