Up until now there have been at least two major nationwide demonstrations against the Iraq War each year since it began, a mass mobilization in March on the anniversary of the war and another one in the fall. But this fall there’s nothing. ANSWER hasn’t called one, neither has United for Peace. Sure, the war isn’t in the news as much and the presidential campaigns are vampiring energy out of progressive movements. But I also think the antiwar movement is a bit out of ideas at the moment. We got millions in the streets for some of the protests, but those numbers have steadily dwindled even as mainstream opposition to the war has grown. Why is that? That’s the question that needs to be answered.
