Hands off Irak!

Today, thousands of demonstrators gathered in cities around the world to protest against the war in Iraq, on the third anniversary of the US-led invasion. Across time zones and cultures, their anti-war sentiments and their opposition to the US-led action in Iraq was the same. In London, crowds filled Trafalgar Square to demonstrate their opposition to the war. A sea of posters in the crowd denounced the war and labelled President Bush a terrorist. Some protesters used colour and costume to make their point, while others burned the US flag as they denounced the war. But the message across the globe was the same - to end the war in Iraq.
