From Lisbon to New York, from London to Moscow, the slogans “Peace, not War!” were heard. Nobody can ignore the fact that there is a growing chasm between the will of Washington and London and the people of the world.
In Lisbon, almost one per cent of the Portuguese population (90,000 out of ten million) marched for peace, while in other cities (Oporto, Coimbra, Faro and Evora) other demonstrations took place with the participation of the opposition parties (Left Block, BE, Socialist party, PS and the Communist party, PCP).
Millions of people around the world gave up their Saturday afternoon to express their revulsion at the fact that international law has been flouted by the USA/UK in attacking Iraq outside the auspices of the UNO.
The voice of the people must be heard, for history has given many examples that failure to do so results in disaster.
