Pitsmoor people march against war

Pitsmoor mobilised last weekend to join the demonstration in London against the proposed war in Iraq.

7 coaches left Ellesmere Road to join one of the largest anti-war demonstrations in recent history. Muslims, pacifists and socialists joined forces with the many with no affiliation: pensioners, children and families who had brought their home-made placards expressing their opposition to war. Estimates of how many marched vary from 150,000 by the police to 400,000 from organisers.
