Person 1: I think it’s been a very successful march. Especially people from all sorts of age, from grannies, to young kids, everyone’s been really friendly, a good atmosphere. And if Tony Blair doesn’t take notice of this. If he doesn’t make a U-Turn soon, he’s in big trouble himself, that’s what I would like to say.

I don’t understand them. I believe Bush just wants the oil. America’s got ten years reserve in their oil. He wants to secure a puppet in Iraq. Whatever he does, it’s going to make things much much worse. It’s going to be a spread of terrorism in the whole area. And if he can only see sense and pull back before it’s too late. There’s a massive protest against him. Tony Blair really has to try and convince them to pull back before it’s too late.

The United Nations is weak because it’s dominated by Americans. I don’t understand why the United Nations can’t be given more time. They must be given more time to do the job properly. Iraq is full of spies and spy planes, if there’s something there, they’ll find it, if you just give them the time to do it.

I feel terribly sorry for anybody whose caught up in a war. I feel very sorry for the families. And I’m sure that the soldiers don’t want it. It’s not a just war. It’s not a war that they should be going to. And I just hope that people can pray for peace, and somehow change their minds. And come back and stop the war now. Thank you everybody here, for making it a wonderful afternoon. Lets have peace. Lets pray for peace. We can make a difference. Situations like this can make a difference, and I believe it will make a difference. Thank you.

Person 2: I think the United Nations was established to set up a framework, between the nations of the world to avoid war, and I think the United States is trying to get around that framework. And I think they should respect it, and they should allow the UN inspectors time to complete their job.

Person 1: No English – speak Arabic – From Kuwait

Person 2: I’m so amazed that there’s so many people here today, and I just want to say, that I want to stop the war against Iraq, and peace for all. Peace for everyone.

Person 1: Thank you

Person 2: How do we cope with this kind of situation? What happens if you know, ok, maybe President Bush isn’t a rogue, erm, leader of a rogue state, but what happens if the United States was lead by a rogue state. So I think we just have to start thinking about it, and you know, and we think we’re very good at the technical side of things, but we don’t seem to have got round to thinking about, how do we all survive together in a way that is satisfying to all of us.

My impression is that the British media’s probably very good, or certainly … television, that they do try and grapple with the real issues that are involved, but it tends to be from a certain standpoint, and there’s a difficulty that I think they have, is that they don’t really know the facts. They try very hard to tease out these sort of things, you know, ‘is there a link with Al-Qaeda’, you know, they will ask the questions.

And I think that, you know, it’s really interesting, the kind of response in countries like this, that a people clearly don’t know, and they are hanging off these words. You know, well, what is the answer? And they don’t actually have the information. And I think that on a bigger scale, that the press, is tied up with materialism and so on. It survives because it’s part of that system. So it’s very difficult for it to step outside that.

Person 2: I think the government controlling the media – little bit.

Person 3: Er, I would like peace on Earth and stuff, and I wish the Israelis and the Palestinians would just get along. And that’s about it really, and, just Peace…

Person 4: Just don’t want to go to war, there’s no need of it…

Person 3: No need…

Person 4: Absolutely no need. Just back out, listen to the United Nations.

Person 5: Admit that we’ve caused a lot of what’s going on at the moment, and just you know, not rush into it now.
