UNDATED (AP) -- Not one more dollar, not one more death. That's the view of Leslie Kagan, national coordinator of United for Peace and Justice, sponsor of what they're calling a "National Day of Action."

She was among thousands of protesters Saturday in New York with signs, banners and umbrellas.

And protester Harriet Lipman doubted whether the march would change things, but added at least it would say something. One man brought his 10-month-old daughter, to share the experience.

In San Francisco, thousands marched downtown and staged a "die-in" commemorating the thousands of American soldiers and Iraqi citizens who have died since the conflict began in March 2003.

There were also protests in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and several other cities.
