International day of action against the war in Iraq was marked ion Moscow by
a March of 200 activists from socialist, anarchist and radical ecological
groups through one of Moscow central streets and a rally at Pushkin square,
where in the recent months several demonstrations against the war in
Chechnya were organized.

Human rights activists and activists of Greenpeace were also present,
although in smaller numbers.This time, too, the organizers decided to speak
out both against the war in Iraq and the war in Chechnya, although the first
topic certainly dominated in the speeches and the slogans of demonstrators.
Going back to the demonstration against the war in Iraq and Chechnya, its
participants were predominantly young (under 40), which is rather unusual
for Russia, where young people are usually said to be "de-politicized".
Active chanting - "No to war for money! No to war for oil! 1-2-3-4- We don't
need your fucking war!", etc. - helped to survive the frost of minus 15
degrees centigrade. Cop presence was rather heavy - about 50 in total -
which was more than at a larger demonstration against the war in Chechnya
two weeks before.

Of course, the demonstration could have been larger, if the organizers would
drop slogans either against the war in Chechnya (nationalists would come to
this event in this case), or would prefer to organize another demon against
the war in Chechnya (and pro-Westerm Russian liberals would come). However,
it was decided to sacrifice neither of these topics and hold a protest
against all wars started or planned by the capitalist system.
Video footage of the demonstration in Moscow is available on
