Manchester Demonstration Against the Spread of War

Manchester Demonstration Against the Spread of War:

"Manchester, England. 20th September 2008. As Gordon Brown's New Labour Party holds its annual conference in Manchester, thousands of anti-war demonstrators march past the conference venue protesting against the spread of war from Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia to Georgia and Pakistan. The demonstration halts for a minutes silence by the Manchester war memorial in St Peter's Square in memory of all those killed--on all sides--in the wars launched by Bush and Blair.

The march--organised by the Stop the War Coalition, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, Military Families Against War and the British Muslim Initiative--handed a letter to a representative of the Prime Minister. These video clips shows scenes from the demonstration and the final rally at the end of the march in the Castlefield Arena."
