  • Significant Protests Around the World

    By The Associated Press

    Demonstrations around the world Sunday related to the war in Iraq

    More than 100,000 Indonesians, chanting America is the "No. 1 terrorist," marched from the British Embassy to the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta. Some estimated the crowd was as large as 300,000.


    _ At least 25,000 people in Spain marched to the edge of the Rota Naval and Air Base, which is shared with U.S. forces. Thousands more marched to military bases in Moron, Zaragoza and Albacete and Torrejon.


    _ Some of the 200,000 demonstrators in Morocco threw stones, burned U.S. flags and tore down posters advertising American products.


    _ In Sao Paolo, Brazil, some of the more than 5,000 demonstrators held pictures of President Bush (news - web sites) with a Hitler-style mustache drawn in.


    _ In a rare state-sanctioned protest, about two dozen students at China's elite Peking University held signboards with photos of wounded Iraqi civilians and distributed handbills criticizing the war.


    _ About 100,000 demonstrators joined a rally organized by hardline Islamic leaders in the northwestern Pakistan city of Peshawar. Thousands more demonstrated in Multan in central Pakistan and Quetta in the southwest.


    _ In South Korea (news - web sites), 30,000 workers demanded the National Assembly rejected a government bill that calls for dispatching 600 military engineers and 100 medics to support coalition forces.


    _ More than 2,000 people formed the Japanese words for "No War" in Osaka, then marched toward the U.S. Consulate.


    _ About 15,000 university students in the Egyptian city of Alexandria burned U.S. and British flags and called for "holy war" to help the Iraqis. Another 15,000 people, mainly members of Egypt's ruling National Democratic Party, rallied in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura.


    _ Some 5,000 Greek Cypriots marched on the British air force base at Akrotiri in Cyprus, police said.


    _ About 300 reporters marched in Amman, Jordan, and chanted, "Bush, be patient, we will dig your grave."
