From the New York Times:
“The fracturing of the Western alliance over Iraq and the huge antiwar demonstrations around the world this weekend are reminders that there may still be two superpowers on the planet: the United States and world public opinion.
In his campaign to disarm Iraq, by war if necessary, President Bush appears to be eyeball to eyeball with a tenacious new adversary: millions of people who flooded the streets of New York and dozens of other world cities to say they are against war based on the evidence at hand.”
Here’s what’s next:
March 1. Emergency Mobilization in DC & SF. The first simultaneous demos in DC & SF was held Oct 26. The next one was Jan 18, Next stop is Mar 1.
March 5. National Moratorium to Stop the War. Students will be attempting to shut down high schools and colleges across the country.
March 8. Global Women’s Strike for peace.
George Bush, in now-typical arrogance and stupidity, has created a massive worldwide movement in opposition to him and everything he and his bloodthirsty bunch of ignorant provincials stand for.
We are in uncharted waters. There has never before been such a huge worldwide movement. And it continues to grow. This is not business as normal. These are historic times.
