Anti-war protests

Watching the news on CNN right now. The anti-war protests are happening around the world…everywhere, it seems, but Israel (Israel too). 100,000+ in NYC, 50,000 in Paris, 500,000 in Berlin, several hundred thousand in dozens of cities across the world. Reporters on the scene are stressing that the protesters are not “the usual suspects” (students, full-time activists, &c.) but are from all age groups and walks of life. As the cameras scanned the crowds in London and NYC, that appeared to be true. Here are some pictures of the protests taken by people on the scene (BBC News is asking for photos).
