Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan didn't get to finish a New York City speech, as police cut the rally short.
A rally organizer was arrested during the event yesterday for allegedly failing to obtain a permit for use of a loudspeaker.
Sheehan, the grieving mother whose 26-day vigil near President Bush's Texas ranch sparked anti-war protests around the country, had nearly finished her speech when police intervened.
Supporters ushered her away from the rally at Manhattan's Union Square park as onlookers yelled at police and chanted "Let her speak!"
Sheehan's 25-state tour is set to culminate Saturday with an anti-war march in the nation's capital.
