From the November 2002 Idaho Observer:
Americans, world protest U.S. war on Iraq
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On October 26, 2002, with a degree of spontaneity that is a credit to the power of electronic communication, major cities throughout the world staged well-attended protests of the Bush administration's intention to declare total war on Iraq.
At www.indymedia.org you will find the most comprehensive, on-scene reporting of international protest of U.S. military action in Iraq. Independent Media, an independent electronic news organization with bureaus in strategic locations throughout the world, provides excellent coverage of worldwide protest on many fronts.
With only a few weeks notice, nearly a million people worldwide turned out in cities such as Rotterdam, Berlin, Barcelona, London, Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago and Denver to protest what appears to be U.S.-led global corporate imperialism -- not a campaign to protect the world from an evil dictator as the Bush administration would have us believe.
The veil of Bush administration benevolence regarding its intentions in Iraq is so thin that, while some Americans believe it, the rest of the world does not. In fact, the rest of the world is getting downright angry with U.S.-proposed actions.
Americans have been taught to believe that Hitler, Stalin, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Napoleon and Julius Ceasar were evil, murderous dictators. It's hard for most Americans to accept that their country's leaders are in the same category as the most hated and reviled leaders in world history.Unless worldwide U.S. aggression comes to a halt, the Bush administration and the American people will not be remembered as leaders of the free world.
