The largest mass worldwide deomstrations in history occured in early 2003, shortly before the illegal U.S. invasion of Iraq. Leslie Cagan, co-director of the national membership coalition United for Peace & Justice (UFPJ), discusses the explostive growth of the anti-war movement in the U.S. during this time, a history under-reported in mainstream media. As a longtime activist, Cagan also places current anti-war actions in historical context and reflects on the lessons and future implications of today’s diverse left-progressive movements.
