Gothamist is getting reports from all over that the anti-war protest currently going on down Broadway is a shockingly large one. Though it is only supposed to go from Union Square down Broadway to Worth Street, we're hearing reports of protesters backing up all the way to Madison Square!

Anybody got any photos? Reports? Etc.? Put 'em in the comments and we'll update this post as more info becomes available (i.e. when the rally actually finishes).

Special Bonus! Today was also the 19th annual Sikh Day Parade, from 40th and Broadway to Madison Square Park. Walking north along the anti-war route, the last couple of blocks blended almost seamlessly into the Sikh Day events-- of course, there were more turbans and curried food!
