Then at noon poets plan to head to the Montgomery BART station to read their work.

Iraq Veterans Against War plans to demonstrate at the Civic Center just in time for rush hour.

The Raging Grannies will lead a sing-along in Palo  Alto at Lytton Plaza.

Michael Reagan, a spokesman for activist group Direct Action  to Stop the War, said as long as the troops are still in Iraq, people will keep protesting.

The biggest demonstration is expected to be on Saturday and is  scheduled to start at 11 a.m. at Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco.
