Police estimated today's crowd at 150,000 while organizers estimated 200,000. Amtrak delays (for overhead power line problems) may have held up thousands. A crowd of 10,000 marched in London while 15,000 marched in LA and several thousand rallied in San Francisco. The anti-war protests were planned for the same weekend as the fall meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, as well as The National Book Festival.
