Sheen leads peace march
Actor Martin Sheen, 62, led a group of women carrying pictures of Iraqi women and children in an anti-war protest in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Some 300 people gathered to demonstrate outside US federal government offices. Fifteen were arrested for blocking access to the facilities.
Sheen - who plays a US president in TV drama The West Wing - filed past the federal building carrying a cross.
Before the war, he appeared in adverts urging viewers to oppose the conflict.
Where have these protesters been? Saddam's been killing Iraqi's since 1979. Why are they more concerned with the small amount of civilian lives that will be lost in this current conflict than the hundreds of thousands (some say as high as a million-and-a-half Iraqis who have been killed under Saddam's rule)???
