EVEN EXPERIENCED protesters were amazed by the size and atmosphere of Thursday's magnificent protest. Thousands poured into the capital from all over Britain, from Aberdeen in northern Scotland to Plymouth in the south, and joined hundreds of thousands more Londoners.
LOCAL DEMONSTRATIONS took place across the country on Wednesday. Here are some of the reports our readers sent in to Socialist Worker.
DEMONSTRATIONS AND meetings took place on Tuesday and Wednesday in London in the build-up to Thursday's demonstration. Shortly after Bush's plane touched down on Tuesday of this week the first demonstration began.
"THERE ARE 300,000 on this demonstration. Three quarters of central London has been brought to a standstill." That announcement from Lindsey German, convenor of the Stop the War Coalition, brought whoops and cheers from the packed rally in Trafalgar Square.
TONY BLAIR and George Bush hoped the state visit of the US president to Britain this week would be a victory parade in the wake of their war on Iraq. Instead the scale of the protests turned the visit into a siege. The two warmongers were forced to cancel planned parades and speeches. They were to hide behind huge numbers of police, totally cut off from any contact with ordinary people.
