10 percent of population turns out

By John Catalinotto, Workers World, 27 February 2003

In the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa, as in 71 other cities in the Spanish state, 10 percent or more of the population came out into the streets to say No war on Iraq and to challenge the pro-Washington policy of Spanish Prime Minister Juan Maria Aznar.

Among those addressing the crowd of 60,000 in Tenerife on Feb. 15 was Berta Joubert-Ceci of the Philadelphia International Action Center. The IAC had been invited to speak at a conference on the USA's new police state and the anti-war resistance by the Citizen's Action Against Neoliberal Globalization in Grand Canary and by the Platform for Peace of Tenerife.
