One Million Participate in Italian General Strike Against the War

On Wednesday 2nd April 2003 a General Strike was called by the following "base unions" [grassroots, radical unions]: CUB, COBAS, SIN COBAS, USI-AIT and SLAI COBAS. All were extremely happy with the turnout which saw approximately 1 million on strike and a quarter of a million at various demonstrations and marches throughout the country.

The General Strike was proclaimed as part of the anti-war efforts by unions against the illegitimate war being carried out by Britain and the USA which is fully supported by the Italian government despite a majority of the population rejecting it.
