I felt my cause had been hijacked

May 2006
New Statesman;5/8/2006, Vol. 135 Issue 4791, p29
The article focuses on a peace march commemorating the one year anniversary of the Iraq war. Unlike the 2003 European Social Forum, the protest was taken over by fringe leftist groups with violent imagery targeting U.S. President George W. Bush and the coalition of the willing. The Socialist Workers Party and the Free Palestine supporters are mentioned as groups that dominated the protest without representing the majority position.
