    Labor Joins Anti-war Coalition - Press Associates, Inc., ILCA
    Its lead sponsoring organization, United for Peace and Justice, said 400,000-500,000 people marched, while CNN reported “tens of thousands.” There were no official estimates, but the crowds took hours to parade around the Capitol and march down the Mall. Large contingents came from the Communications Workers and the Coalition of Labor Union Women. Participants came from as far as Wisconsin and Illinois.

    Labor made its support for withdrawal known not just through USLAW, but through Fred D. Mason, Jr. President of the Maryland-D.C. AFL-CIO, who told the crowd he spoke for the 10-million-member national labor federation and its president, John J. Sweeney.
