Hi Natalie,
just a note on the Irish participation in Saturday's excellent
demonstration,

Irish wishes for neutrality were reaffirmed on Saturday when over 150,000
protestors took to the streets in Dublin and towns all over Ireland. It was
the biggest demonstration in Dublin since tax marches in the 1970s and saw
the longest street in the capital entirely filled with people, banners and
great atmosphere! The Greens joined other opposition political parties,
community groups, schools, musicians, writers and even a group of  'pets for
peace'. For most people this was their first time at a protest and they came
along with their families and plenty of home made banners. Hopefully we made
the government wake-up to true Irish feeling on this unjust war.
