A message from the National Stop the War Coalition

Congratulations and thank you all for your magnificent efforts. Together, we made Saturday's demonstration an historic event - an event that is having and will continue to have a profound impact on the course of events. This triumph belongs to all of you... to everyone who handed out a leaflet or put up a poster, who helped organise a meeting or a coach to London, who wrote to the newspapers or phoned the TV. Our special thanks to those who found themselves at the end of the march and were forced to wait for so long at Embankment. We deeply appreciate your patience and tolerance. Prior to the march, we had repeatedly asked the police for permission to set up a PA at Embankment, but were refused.

Our message has gone round the world. TV and print media have given it coverage across Europe, North America, Australia, the middle east, South Asia, Africa and the far east.

Finally, two important responses to the demo from the USA. First, from Condoleezza Rice, Bush's Director of National Security, and the second from Vietnam veteran and anti-war activist Ron Kovic (author of 'Born on the Fourth of July').

Only 350,000 in a country whose population runs in millions is just a drop in the bucket. No wonder the New York Times did not find it news fit to print.

Condoleeza Rice

Congratulations on your victorious and massive antiwar demonstration on Saturday! You have inspired the world, and all of us here in the United States! If there is anything that I can personally do to help your organization in future demonstrations or activities concerning stopping this war...please let me know! Again congratulations! With great hope for peace!

Ron Kovic, Vietnam Vet, author of Born on the Fourth of July
