March 7-9, 2003, the Women's Day March For Peace brings a close to the winter-long peace vigil by "Code Pink, a Woman's Vigil and Fast for Peace," which arrived in Lafayette Park on November 17, 2003. Members of the Peace Park Antinuclear Vigil were delighted to welcome these effective, focused folk, even though the Park Police began making some harsh rulings in wintry weather. See "Peace protests near White House growing," and "Where the Cold War Continues," and "Protesters say new group spurs crackdown."

March 15th is the "Emergency Antiwar Convergence on the White House."
