Massive demo against the war

Massive demo against the war
The rain was not an obstacle and today thousands of people of all ages have demonstrated through the streets of Palma against the war in Iraq. The mobilisation, called by the Plataforma per la DemocrÓcia i la Globalitzaciˇ Social, has been one of the most important remembered in Palma, comparable with the one organised by the GOB in 1998 demanding sustainable urban planning.

A group of xeremiers and a banner with the slogan "No a la guerra imperialista" led the demonstration that went peacefully from the Plaza de Espa˝a to the Paseo del Born, where the reporter Cristina Ros read the unitarian manifest against the war three times so that it could be heard by the hoards of people who have been calculated by some to be 40,000.

The massive attendance at the demonstrations against the war that this Saturday have been held in the main cities all over the world is, for many observers, a clear and conclusive reflection from a society that wants to participate directly in the matters that affects it. People from all over the world who respond in a global way in solidarity to a challenge to humanity, such as living in peace.
