The article reports on the factors which triggered the failure of several protests in Australia from February 14-16, 2003 to stop the country's involvement in the Iraq War. It says that these movements did not succeed due to lack of human and financial resources, internal conflict in major coalitions, and lack of effective strategy. However, it notes that the protests succeeded to show that the said war is unjust.
