Video: We Are Many
"The global protest against the Iraq War on 15 February 2003 was a pivotal moment in recent history, the consequences of which have gone unreported. Amir Amirani's We Are Many chronicles the struggle to shift power from the old establishment to the new superpower that is global public opinion, through the prism of one historic day. I urge you to support this film in whatever way you can." - Oliver Stone

On February 15, 2003 over 15 million people marched against the war in Iraq, in over 800 cities around the world. If you protested that day, you made history. Join us and let the world know you were there.
We are making our documentary film about the global day of action on 15th February 2003.
We are gathering people's stories and memories of the day to commemorate this historic moment. With history seemingly repeating itself with the drumbeats of war against Iran, it is now more timely and important than ever to remember and learn the lessons of the past, and prevent another costly and catastrophic war. Our film, together with your stories, will make a big splash on the 10th anniversary in Feb 2013. So let's make a start now.
Tens of millions of people said "Not In Our Name" to warmongers on that day. Please share your own reflection and invite people you know who marched/were against the Iraq war to tell their stories too. We will select and film some of your stories for possible inclusion in We Are Many.
Let's inspire the new generation of people and do our part to bring peace to the world. Join Now!
The film is partially funded by our successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. We still need your help to keep the memory of February 15th 2003 alive! Please consider making a donation. . .

a brilliant article! it's so easy to dispair and loose sight of the fact that democratic forces have reached unprecedentd heights in recent years.
I was in the streets of New York on February 15th, 2003, along with over 400 other students from my university (a large chuck of the undergrad population). Sometimes, when you're in the thick of things, you don't realize how sweeping and epochal a single event can be. It wasn't until I purchased a book called "2/15 - The Day the World Said NO to War," that I realized the scope and impact of the peace movement today. The book is a collection of inspiring and diverse photos from peace protests around the world.
If the exhibition you refer to is anything like the book, I would say it's well worth seeing.
