On the the eight-year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, hundreds, possibly thousands, of people with varied political opinions converged at Noon on Saturday at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine to protest U.S. engagement in Iraq and Afghanistan and to march in an annual anti-war demonstration organized by Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER). Many streets will be closed again for the 2011 LA Marathon. Drive accordingly.
