It is now more than two years since the illegal invasion of Iraq. During last weekend’s anti-war rally in Sydney, journalist and filmmaker John Pilger gave a powerful speech reminding the assembled masses of the following:
” What all of you should remember on this second anniversary of the brutal assault on Iraq is that you are not alone: that you are part of a great worldwide movement that refuses to accept the dangers and moral indecencies of Bush and Blair and Howard.”
Furthermore, he explained the world’s awakening to the true motives and actions of the US, Britain and Australia. We may not read much about the developing world here, such as Latin America or Africa, but be rest assured that Western media can only shield us for so long from the stories of people and groups imagining a world without US hegemony.
