WASHINGTON -- Organizers are planning what they say will be the largest anti-war demonstration in the nation's capital since the Iraq war began in March 2003.

Cindy Sheehan, whose 24-year-old son, Army Spc. Casey Sheehan, was killed last year in Iraq, is on a 25-state bus tour that will end at the protest in Washington.

The groups Freerepublic.com and Protest Warrior are organizing a smaller counter-demonstration. Karl Singer of Protest Warrior said the anti-war movement gets too much media coverage.

The latest AP-Ipsos poll found just over half of Americans say the country made a mistake invading Iraq and disapprove of the way Bush is handling the war. Almost six in 10 said troops should stay until Iraq is stable.

The religious organization Democracy Rising, meanwhile, has kicked off an anti-war effort in which church bells will toll weekly to honor soldiers killed in Iraq.
