From Chicagoist, a website about Chicago:
You wouldn't know it by reading the papers, but it's likely that tomorrow a few thousand people will march downtown to Federal Plaza to protest the American military presence in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other places. The march, organized primarily by the Chicago Coalition Against War and Racism has a number of starting points, Senn High School at 6:00 am for the "North Side Long March Against Empire", Michigan and Oak Streets at Noon for the regular, or 2:00 pm at the Adams and Dearborn Federal Plaza for just the protest. ***

March 19, 2005 is the second anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, and this is the second downtown march to mark the date. Last year's protest, held on March 20, attracted about 7,000-8,000 protestors, according to the Chicago Police Department.
Well now you know.
