Ian Sinclair’s new book, The march that shook Blair, is an oral history of
the largest demonstration in British history – the march against the Iraq
war on February 15, 2003. Published to mark the 10th anniversary of the
march, the book explores the impact of the march and the anti-war
movement, the debate about the tactics of the Stop the War Coalition, the
effect of the march on Britain’s Muslim population and much more besides.

“On this evidence, the big march was shock and awe from the bottom-up; it

came within a hair’s breadth of derailing the warmongers and still shapes
our politics today.” – Joe Glenton, Afghan war veteran and author of
Soldier Box (Verso)

According to polling, over 1¼ million people took part in Britain’s
biggest-ever political protest: the 15 February 2003 anti-war march in
London against the invasion of Iraq. Around the world millions more
demonstrated, leading the New York Times to note that “there may still be
two superpowers on the planet: the United States and world public
opinion.”
