On one side were the anti-war protestors, and on the other side were the supporters.
Hundreds of demonstrators had a simple message for the President: end the U.S. involvement in Libya.
"Instead of bombing Libya, instead of trying to carry out regime change in Libya, we want to have jobs, schools, housing, health care, says Brian Becker with the ANSWER Coalition, which sponsored the anti-war rally. "Things that human beings actually need that are being cut right now."
Lauren Kellner says she doesn't buy NATO's rationale for the conflict.
"I would love an explanation of how dropping bombs on a people is humanitarian when it kills people," she says.
A group of Libyan exiles started a counter protest. Fadi Tarapolsi came with a simple message.
"That we as the Libyan people are appreciative of the support that we are getting. After decades of tyranny and oppression we would love to get rid of Ghadafi ourselves, but it became very clear early on that outside help would be needed. And we're very thankful for the help that we’re getting."
Tarapolsi says his family was granted political asylum in the U-S after Ghadafi tried to assassinate members of his family.
