About 55 percent of the participants in the Guardian/ICM poll also expressed their agreement with anti-war protesters who took to the streets of London in February 2003.

Only 28 percent said that the “London marchers” were wrong to protest against the war leading to the toppling of Iraq’s dictator Saddam Hussein.

Those who voted against the war in the opinion poll include male and female respondents from every age range.


In February 2003, more than one million people marched against the war in Iraq, only to be brushed aside by the then Prime Minister Tony Blair.

In 2003, the US and Britain invaded Iraq in blatant violation of international law and under the pretext of finding weapons of mass destruction (WMD) allegedly stockpiled by the former Iraqi ruler. However, no WMD were ever discovered in Iraq.

More than one million Iraqis were killed as a result of the invasion and subsequent occupation of the country, according to the California-based investigative organization Project Censored.
