In a time of bad publicity for Fianna Fail, a 2007 Election Podcast that looks at Peace in Northern Ireland.

On Day X – ‘Stop The World , To Stop The War’ -Irish Anti War Movement 2003 September 3, 2010

On Day X – ‘Stop The World , To Stop The War’ a 2003 flyer from The Irish Anti War Movement.
In February 2003 a crowd of 100,000 demonstrated against the War in Iraq. A Month later the war started.
This leaflet is (I think) from early March 2003. When the war started there were to be brief work stoppages and protests at various venues.
