We Are Many and Changing the World

We Are Many: Global Feb. 15 2003 Protests Didn't Stop Iraq War, But May Have Changed the World

by Democracy Now!

Up to 30 million people in nearly 800 cities rocked the globe on February 15, 2003, in antiwar rallies against the looming U.S. invasion of Iraq, making it the largest coordinated protest in history. And while the first U.S. bombs would hit Baghdad weeks later, a new documentary argues that the protests weren’t just a one-day historical feat, but a spark that changed the world forever.

The new documentary "We Are Many" tells the story of that historic day of protest and how it’s helped shape global political movements ever since.

We are joined by the film’s director and producer, Amir Amirani.
