For the second time this year, I marched against a war in Iraq. As expected, today’s rally was much larger than last month’s rally. I gauged the crowd at some 20,000. The Globe And Mail reports there were 10,000 in attendance, a gross underestimate, while the CBC reports that 25,000 were present.
In addition to attracting more people, this month’s rally seemed better organised than January’s. I was happy to see the same diverse set of people and also pleasantly surprised at the level of relevant placards. Hundreds of signs dotted the crowd, all but a few of which denounced a war on Iraq.
