On October 6, 2002 the Council on American Muslim Relations reported that "an estimated 10,000 people converged on the lawn of the Federal Building in Los Angeles to protest the impending war on Iraq. The rally and march was organized by the 'Not In Our Name' (NION) project, a group that formed a year ago to protest our government's heavy-handed policies, domestically and internationally, in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks."
