The build up for war on Iraq continues at a frightening pace, but the international opposition to war is also growing.
The build up for war on Iraq continues at a frightening pace. This month the Government sent a further 26,000 soldiers to the Gulf.
Fortunately the international opposition to war is also growing. According to one poll outright opposition to war in the UK now stands at 47%.
On 18 January up to 500,000 marched in Washington, USA, 200,000 in France, and thousands more in major cities across the world - from Pakistan to Japan to Ecuador.

Solidarity is promoting a statement to define and shape and internationalist and democratic movement against both the planned war on Iraq and Saddam Hussein's dictatorship. The original text was signed in the USA by Michael Albert, Noam Chomsky, Edward Said and others, and now other signatories are joining internationally.
