Why Iraq? Why now?

The publication of The Iraq Inquiry took us right back to 2003 and this really memorable piece of protest design by Alan Kitching. It ran in The Guardian newspaper as a full page advertisement and was undersigned by heavyweight designers from all disciplines. The invitation was simple. Cut out and make your own protest banner to take to the Anti War rally in London on 15 February 2003. Just over a month before war broke out on 20 March.

Over 750,000 people attended the London rally that day. Similar rallies ran across the UK and in as many as 60 countries and 600 cities around the world making it the largest protest event in human history.
