Sept. 15 Antiwar Demonstration: The Speeches

The rally portion of the demonstration against the war in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 15, organized by the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, was broadcast on C-SPAN2, but isn't archived there. I missed the original broadcast on Sunday, and only caught (and recorded) the rebroadcast on Tuesday, which I believe (not sure) may have been somewhat shorter (fewer speeches). I've broken up the video into a series of speeches which you'll find below. All are good, although if you only have time for one, start with the last one - Adam Kokesh of Iraq Veterans Against the War (the order is the order in which the speeches were given).

Brian Becker, A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition National Coordinator:

Tina Richards, Grassroots America:

Mara Verheyden-Hilliard (Partnership for Civil Justice, member of the ANSWER Steering Committee) & Cindy Sheehan:

Ramsey Clark:

Ralph Nader: (click here if this one doesn't appear; it seems to be having trouble because it was a few seconds longer than 10 minutes)

Essam Omesh, President of the Muslim American Society:

Michael McPhearson, Executive Director, Veterans for Peace:

Liam Madden and Garett Reppenhegen, Iraq Veterans Against the War:

Adam Kokesh, Iraq Veterans Against the War:
