Largest Protest in Human History
Posted by Fredsvenn den juli 6, 2012
Remember 15 February 2003? The day when tens of millions of people in every corner of the world said no to war in Iraq: the largest mobilization of people in human history when up to 30 million in nearly 800 cities around the world took to the streets.
Were you one of them?
WE ARE MANY will for the first time tell the story of this day in a powerful new international feature-length documentary. The film will trace the story of that historic day and reveal its as yet untold legacy.
Ten years on, the power still resonates. Time Magazine named “The Protestor” as Person of the Year, 2011, a telling recognition of the resurgence of people power.
The protest of 15 February 2003 represents the high water mark of the peace movement. The generation that emerged from that movement is active today in Britain, Spain, Greece, the Arab world and the global Occupy Movement.
WE ARE MANY is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to tell our story and inspire a new generation to even greater and long-term activism for social change.
Though the Iraq war was not stopped, that was far from the end of the story.
