REM, Moby and Rufus Wainwright urge withdrawal of US troops
The Bring ‘Em Home Now! event was held at the city’s Hammerstein Ballroom on the third anniversary of the Iraq invasion.
According to BBC News, Moby said: “I was raised by peace activists.”
Organisers have reported that 3,000 tickets were sold for the event,
which was also attended by anti-war protestor Cindy Sheehan whose son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2004, and who actress Susan Sarandon – also present at the event – hopes to play in an upcoming film.
“It’s awesome to me because there are more and more kids getting involved,” Sarandon said.
