About Feb 15 protests:
"The first truly coordinated mobilisation against the war on Iraq at the 
international level will take place Saturday 15 February. Actually, it 
could very well turn out to be the most important day of protest in World 

Initial estimates are that over 50 million people will participate in peace 
rallies on February 15th - this is entirely without historical precedent.
