THE ALL-Wales Coalition Against the War, supported by CND, held an anti-occupation of Iraq demonstration in Cardiff last Saturday. Demonstrators marched through the centre of town, and between 500 and 600 people from anti-war groups across Wales took part.
There were a great variety of supporters - young and old, black and white, including Iraqis from the local mosque.
AROUND 200 people attended a May Day peace festival in Aberdeen last weekend. The event was organised by Aberdeen Trades Council. A substantial minority of those who attended are heading for Evian to protest against the G8 in June.
AROUND 45 people went to the Bury Stop the War Coalition meeting to discuss the local elections on Thursday of last week. The meeting discussed how anti-war activists should vote. It was resolved by an absolute majority to write to George Galloway declaring the meeting's support for him and his courageous anti-war stand.
