"Today in 50 cities around the world people are gathering as we are gathering to call for peace in the Middle East, as far away as Puerto Rico, Korea, Iceland and New Zealand and in eleven American cities people are gathered as we are, and we represent the people of the world - that is an important thing for us to remember - we are not a lot of isolated groups protesting. We are demanding the end of the occupation of Iraq, Afghanistan, justice for the Palestinian people and no threat to the people of Iran - that's what we are demanding."
