NEW YORK (AP) _ Demonstrations against the Iraq war continue.

In New York, hundreds of anti-war activists called for "defunding'' the war in Iraq or the immediate return of US troops as they marched through Manhattan Sunday. They took their case to the offices of the state's two Democratic senators.

Actor Tim Robbins told the crowd that getting Congress to cut off funds for the war "would be a good way'' to get the troops home. He said, "The American people want this war to end'' adding, "That's the message they sent last November in the election.'' As he put it, "When are we going to start listening to them?''

Elsewhere, antiwar activists gathered in dozen of towns and cities across Maine in a show of opposition to the Iraq war, timed to coincide with its fourth anniversary.
