The organization Pax Christi USA coordinated a press conference, march and demonstration against the war with Iraq. The participants included leaders from religious and peace organizations, including two Nobel Peace Laureates (Mairead Corrigan Maguire and Jody Williams) and Daniel Ellsberg (author and activist).

Pax Christi USA is the national Catholic peace movement. Their membership includes 140 U.S. bishops and 550 religious communities.

Participants marched from the New York Ave. Presbyterian Church to Lafayette Square. After a prayer service, most in the crowd engaged in a civil disobedience and were arrested. close
