March 21, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Hundreds of protesters gathered in Hollywood Saturday to demonstrate against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, including peace mom Cindy Sheehan and Oscar-winning screenwriter Paul Haggis. The march is part of a nationwide "Day of Action" on the sixth anniversary of the Iraq War and includes similar rallies in San Francisco and Washington D.C.

Protesters in Los Angeles are expected to follow the rally with a march and then a symbolic "die in" where they plant to lie down in a major Hollywood Boulevard intersection. They also plan to transport mock coffins to the doorstep of the Armed Forces Recruiting center in Hollywood.
