Thousands Protest Iraq War

On March 18, demonstrations across Canada marked the third anniversary of the Iraq war. Over 3,000 filled the streets in Vancouver, an estimated 6,000 demonstrators turned out in Toronto, and 2,000 convened in Montreal. Hundreds attended rallies in Ottawa and Halifax. An estimated 40 cities across Canada held anti-war demonstrations.

Demonstrators variously called for an end to the US occupation of Iraq, withdrawal of Canadian troops from Afghanistan, and reparations for Canada's role in "overthrowing democracy" in Haiti.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
