Clockwise from left: In Washington March 16, some 70 religious leaders and peace activists marched from New York Avenue Presbyterian Church to Lafayette Park in front of the White House, where they climbed over barricades and offered themselves for arrest as a witness against war on Iraq.  About 100 people gathered to support those arrested.

Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Gumbleton of Detroit is arrested.  The civil disobedience action was coordinated by Pax Christi USA, a Catholic peace group.
