Cindy Hearn, the main organizer of the rally, said they were marching for peace and social justice. We want the American war machine to disappear because it is the most destructive force in the world. This situation is unsustainable and it is eroding the hope of the American people for the future.

In an interview, Sheehan explained why she opposed the United States as a war machine - her son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2014. She said that as long as Americas war machine was still in operation, death would not end.
Sean said the protest was chosen on Friday, and the time was tight, but they wanted to attract more Americansattention during the working day. We wanted to reach more people and influence them. Let them realize the importance of things. We spend a lot of money on war every day, but we dont have normal medical care and education. We still have more than a million people homeless, so the endless war must end.
The protestors also signed an open letter and sent it to President Trump through his favorite social media, Twitter. In their letter, they urged the White House to withdraw its troops and stop the endless war. Many of the protestors held up homemade posters and signs on the scene, which read, Stop the war at home and abroad, There is no war in Iran and so on.
