Peace Demonstrations Continue
Organised by the Plataforma per la Democràcia i la Globalització Social, over ten thousand people of all ages demonstrated again last Saturday through the streets of Palma against the war. A numerous group of actors in the name of Encuentro de Arte por la Paz gave a festive and protest tone to the movement that went peacefully through the Plaza Espanya to the Voltes, via the Avenidas and Paseo Marítimo. When the demonstrators reached Ses Voltes, the reporter Marisol Ramírez read the unitarian manifest against the war and the event ended with the performance of the humorist Llonovoy. The demonstration last Saturday is the fifth massive one organised by the Plataforma per la Democràcia i la Globalització Social against the war in Iraq.
