On Saturday, 2nd March there's a march organised by the Stop the War Coalition. The basic aim being to show public opposition to continued action in Afghanistan and other countries, as well as opposition to Bush's militaristic ideals and the results of his actions. The thought is this would be a good event to meet up and spin at, seeing how a lot of people here hold pretty similar views.Plan is at meet about 1pm at Hyde Park where they'll be lots of other people (we'll be the ones spinning the poi

), and sometime after than there's a march to Trafalgar Square.Hopefully the weather is going to be OK, if seasonally a bit chilly. As always, chance of a couple of light showers, so get practising spinning umbrellas!More info at: Stop the War Coalition

Cool! And stilts! Can I borrow someone's stilts? That'd be fun! I'm just not tall enough already.Anyway, normally gathering point is the bit of the park nearest Marble Arch tube station. Last time you could spot the people going there and just follow them.Weather's looking OK as well!

Sorry to say this but I have $100 billion that says you cant change Bush's mind. I dont think that a peace rally no matter how big could change his mind, let alone mine and I know for a fact that I am more apt to change that he is.I do agree that it is time to get out of afganistan and let the local military do the job.

Some Jarhead last night: "this dumb a$$ thinks hes fireproof"

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." -- Martin Luther King, Jr.Anyway, it was a cool day. The sun even shone a bit! I only took a handful of photos at Trafalgar Square which I've put online here. Thanks to anyone who came, and the random people I met there!Charlie Chaplin, when being investigated by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), stated that he was a "peace-monger". Great word!
