In response to the increased intensity of fighting throughout Iraq and especially in Fallujah, International Act Now to Stop War and End Racism in the U.S. and other like-minded groups around the world, called for emergency anti-war demonstrations the weekend of April 9-11, 2004 in dozens of cities worldwide. The protests drew respectable numbers of demonstrators, including 500 to 700 in Washington D.C. Rallying in Lafayette Park, newly reopened to protesters, in front of the White House, demonstrators demanded the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and that money slated for the war instead be used for education, jobs and healthcare.
