“The scale of next Saturday’s anti-war demonstration in London may take some by surprise. Organised by the Stop the War Coalition and the Muslim Association of Britain, it is endorsed by major trade unions, human rights campaigners, community groups, artists and intellectuals.
In its diversity, it will probably exceed that of today’s Countryside march, although the animal hunters have predictably had more publicity than the peacemakers. Among those opposing this war are many Iraqis and Kurds living in this country. No one has to lecture them about the horrors of Saddam’s regime.”
