Actor Martin Sheen joined anti-war protesters camped up at US President George W Bush's Texas ranch last week (ends26AUG05) to voice his opposition to the ongoing battle in Iraq.

Sheen spoke to the hundreds of protestors gathered in Crawford and spoke with Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a serviceman killed in Iraq and the woman responsible for starting the rally.

Folk star Joan Baez was also among those gathered, performing her anthems SONG OF PEACE and WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE for the assembled crowd.
