Thanks for the correction. This is certainly heartening news. I do now
remember that a huge antiwar demonstration did take place that day.
Thankfully, black block antics were missing. I should have been more
specific in any case. I am much more dubious about the US and Canadian
players in the anti-globalization movement, about which I have
first-hand knowledge. My guess is that Europe has a different dynamic,
because labor and socialist traditions are much stronger there.
