#IWasThere

ON FEBRUARY 15, 2003, MILLIONS OF ORDINARY CITIZENS IN OVER 800 CITIES AROUND THE WORLD POURED INTO THE STREETS TO PROTEST AGAINST THE RUSH TOWARDS THE INVASION OF IRAQ.

According to BBC News, 6 to 10 million people took part in protests in up to 60 countries, on every continent, over the weekend of the 15th and 16th of February 2003. Other reports estimated the actual number was closer to 30 million. Protesters from Tasmania to Iceland, New York to Sydney, and London to Rome, marched against the impending war in Iraq. Even at the McMurdo base in Antarctica, more than 50 scientists staged a half-hour rally.

It has been described as “the biggest and most widespread collective protest the world has ever seen. Director, Amir Amirani, produced ‘We Are Many’ over 11 years, filming across seven countries including: Italy, Spain, Egypt, Sweden, Australia, the UK and the USA.

I could not believe the number of people that came to the London march. Of course the police wildly under-estimated the size of the march as they always do with anti-government events.
