Update from Rally at the Encampment Site
Thousands of people are joining us here at the Encampment, despite efforts by the police to block access to the rally.

We have been informed that police have blocked an entire highway into the city in order to stop the buses that are coming from dozens of organizing centers. We have been on the phone with organizers, planning alternate routes into the city tobypass. We are determined not to let the police block the outpour of resistance and opposition to Bush's criminal war.

The mall in front of Congress is full of thousands of activists, some from as far away as Washington State and Hawaii .

The march is stepping off in just a few minutes, and we've just heard that a group of youth are planning civil disobedience at the end of the march. Details and updates to follow.
