LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Opponents of a war with Iraq marched in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, carrying signs and chanting "Stop Bush now!"

About 2,000 people attended the demonstration, the Los Angeles Police Department estimated. No arrests or disturbances were reported.

Actor Martin Sheen, a longtime peace activist, and Bradley Whitford, who portrays Josh Lyman in NBC's "The West Wing" alongside Sheen, spoke at the rally.

Demonstrators carried signs reading "Stop the war" and "No blood for oil" as they marched to the federal building in Los Angeles.

The protest included the groups Not in our Name, the Coalition for World Peace and the Interfaith Communities United for Justice.
