Hundreds of thousands of antiwar protesters marched in Madrid Spain to call for an end to the U.S. occupation of Iraq. Calls were also made for the total withdrawal of some 1,300 Spanish troops from Iraq. The anti-Imperialist protestors held banners and placards that denounced the idiot Cowboy in the Whitehouse, as well as his puppet... Prime Minister of Spain, Jose Maria Aznar. Protestors also carried thousands of pictures of Spanish television cameraman Jose Couso, who was murdered along with Reuters TV cameraman Taras Protsyuk when U.S. occupation soldiers fired a tank shell at the media hotel where the two were working in Baghdad. The massive anti-war protest was held to mark the first anniversary of demonstrations held around the world when nearly 15 Million people marched to oppose the U.S. oil war against Iraq (Reuters photo/Andrea Comas).

MADRID, Feb. 15 (Xinhuanet) -- Some 200,000 demonstrators took to the street across Spain on Sunday, protesting the occupation of Iraq by US-led forces and demanding an immediate military withdrawal and the return of sovereignty to the Iraqi people.
The demonstration, organized by trade unions and several socialorganizations, came eleven months after the US-led coalition forces invaded Iraq and ousted former president Saddam Hussein. It also marked the anniversary of last year's massive anti-war demonstration in Madrid and Barcelona. Some 150,000 people, according to the organizers, participated in the demonstration in Madrid, capital city of the country, local media Europa Press said.
Carrying such banners as "USA Out" and "No War, No Occupation, "the demonstrators urged foreign troops, including the Spanish ones, to withdraw from Iraq. Demonstrators also gathered in other major cities like Barcelona, Valencia and Seville as well as smaller towns.
The Spanish government led by Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar has strongly backed the US-led military operations in Iraq. Some 1,300 Spanish soldiers are currently deployed in Iraq.
