In a new format for 2013, the Green Left Report hosts a roundtable
discussion and debate on the millions strong protests prior to the war on
Iraq in February 2003. This weeks roundtable includes some key activists at
the time who reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of the protests and
lessons for progressive struggles today. Pip Hinman was a leader of the
anti-war movement in Sydney at the time; Nick Deane convened a local peace
group; and Jim McIlroy, who has been an anti-war activist since the Vietnam
war, was part of the Brisbane protests. Also featured is an interview with
Simon Butler, who led Books Not Bombs protests of high school and other
youth opposed to the war.

They discuss with GLR hosts Mel Barnes and Peter Boyle. The episode ends
with Carlo Sands critiquing the notion of the "lesser evil".
