Anti-war protests worldwide
Reports of the anti-war movement's collapse have been greatly exaggerated,
As the Iraqi war goes from cock-up to cock-up, the anti-war movement
(which looked, for a moment, like being abandoned by the non-lunatic-fringe demo
graphic) is going from strength to strength, with protests worldwide
, from mass rallies in Indonesia to art exhibitions and nude protests in Latin America, to China's tiny, officially sanctioned contribution:
Around 200 foreigners were permitted to shout anti-war slogans as they marched past the US embassy in Beijing on Sunday. But police ordered around 100 Chinese students to surrender their banners and blocked them from entering a park where local people had secured permission to demonstrate. One Chinese man was hauled off for handing out anti-war leaflets, reported Reuters news agency.
It'll be interesting to see North Korea's contribution to the anti-war protests, if only for the impeccable choreography.
