Featured this week: 12 million say: No to Bush's oil war!

Almost 1 million people in Australia mobilised on February 14-16 to tell
Prime Minister John Howard and Labor leader Simon Crean that they oppose
any war on Iraq, with or without UN backing. Across the globe, at least
12 million people protested against the US-British plan to decimate
Iraq. This was the largest coordinated anti-war protest in history.
Green Left Weekly's correspondents around Australia and around the world
report. (GLW have more in depth reports from participants in issue
