In different cities in the U.S., like in Los Angeles, Portland and Austin large demonstrations against the U.S. war policy took place.
Rallies and demonstrations against the U.S. war policy took place also in other countries, like Italy, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Austria and Belgium.
As the United States is forcing new military inspections on Iraq, over 2000 Belgian peace activists landed at the military base at Kleine Brogel on Sunday, in order to perform a "civil inspection". They trespassed on and occupied the base, which is used to store illegal U.S. nuclear weapons. On the Kleine Brogel military base there is an illegal stock of U.S. nuclear warheads. In spite of massive military and police presence, lots of activists succeeded in getting on the base. According to the police, 1034 people where arrested on and around the base. In spite of the brutal way in which the police and military acted, there was a very good feeling among the activists.
In about 120 Italian cities, nearly half million people demonstrated against the imperialist policy of the U.S. government.
In the German city Kaiserslautern over 3000 people protested against the planned war. Peace activists in Germany promised massive resistance against the U.S. policy of war. On the possible “day X” in all big cities large demonstrations planned and they promised massive paralyzing of the public life in Germany.
