As of 13th of February folk in 484 locations around the world (including Antarctica!) had registered their intention to protest on February 15th against war in Iraq. This weekend’s protests are expected to be the biggest ever public mobilisation against war.

Massive protests are planned for New York, San Francisco and London – and over half a million people may participate in each city. The protest in New York is arguably a focal point for the days activities, but in reality there will be a global wave of protest over a 48 hour period.
