LONDON (Reuters) - Demonstrators opposed to the U.S. led air strikes in Afghanistan gather in Trafalgar Square after a march through central London, October 13, 2001. (Photo by Michael Crabtree/Reuters) The thousands of demonstrators turned Trafalgar Square into a sea of colorful banners echoing with chanting against the bombing. No arrests were reported. ``It's the most socially diverse we've ever seen. This shows it is not a conflict between Islam and the West....all those in favor of human rights oppose the U.S. and U.K. bombings,'' said Mike Marqusee, a leading member of the Stop the War Coalition.
Muslims and Christians marched side by side in a protest against the bombing of Afghanistan that attracted more than 20,000 people, according to police estimates.
``We're here because there are thousands of people across Britain who know that the bombing of Afghanistan is not going to put an end to terrorism,'' said Carol Naughton, chairman of the protest organizers, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). ``We need to stop the bombing and go right back to diplomatic ways to end this crisis,'' she told Reuters.
