Mass Demonstration Against the War in Iraq
New York, March 22, 2003

images by Howard Besser

A huge turnout (some reports say 250,000), an incredibly spirited and diverse crowd. A massive police presence. Spirit grew increasingly tense as day progressed, culminating in major standoffs and arrests around Washington Square Park. These images have been divided into 6 sets for easier loading:

  • part #1
  • part #2
  • part #3
  • part #4
  • part #5
  • part #6
  • all images together (very slow to load)
