01-06-2012 14:50

There's a film being made about the anti-war protests of 15 Feb 2003, the film makers "working closely with the Stop the War Coalition" amongst others. It doesn't sound like STWC will be claiming their share of responsibility for the failure of the day - by doing their utmost to stop any civil disobedience or resistance for example. The invitation suggests that the "Arab Revolutions and the subsequent Indignados and Occupy Movements" started here. Oh really? You may well not be selected if you present an alternative view of the day, but here are the details in case you'd like to take part.
