"On February 17, 2003, a front page news analysis in the New York Times described the global anti-war protests as the emergence of 'the second superpower'." --The Register
We need a few minutes of your time and a few mouse clicks to build a powerful message: the return of the second superpower.
On February 15th last year, 30 million people were on the streets to say "No" to war. The centreless coalition of groups and individuals who organised those activities want YOU and YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS back on the street this Saturday, March 20th, to demonstrate that we STILL say "No" to war.
In March 2003, George Bush told us that "Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised."
We now know this was untrue. And a war based on this untruth has cost over 10,000 civilian lives.
On March 18th, one year will have passed since the invasion of Iraq began. We can't stand silent. The world's leaders need to know that the demonstration by 30 million people last year was a lasting expression of a global democratic force.
Be a part of the second superpower. Stand up against future illegal, preemptive wars and protest the continuing suppression of human rights and free speech which have characterised this one. Help us get the word out that we're making a second showing on Saturday, March 20th.
