The kaleidoscope has been shaken.

The pieces are in flux.

Soon they will settle again.

Before they do,

let us reorder this world around us.

We were fearful. We were concerned.

We were anxious about the way

that the US was going to retaliate,

and we had very little confidence

they were gonna behave sensibly.

Over a few days,

we started talking on the phone,

getting together, and said "Look,

we're gonna set up a Stop The War Coalition."

They set up the Stop The War Coalition.

They asked me to be president of it,

which I very happily accepted.

And there was a meeting called.

They knew immediately

that there was going to be a war,

and so they had a meeting

in Friends House here.

I attended that meeting. It was amazing.

Hall after hall after hall.

The entire building was taken over.

It took just five days to organize,

but the Stop The War protest

and meeting attracted so many people,

they had to close the doors.

I wrote a leaflet for that meeting,

and the title of the meeting

was "Stop The War Before It Starts."

That's what was on the leaflet.

And that's why it became

the Stop The War Coalition.

It's just absolutely unbelievable

that that particular event

triggered such a momentous movement.

The war on terrorism begins.

America and Britain strike Afghanistan.

President Bush says the campaign

will be sustained,

comprehensive and relentless.

Afghanistan, I was completely gung-ho for it.

We were excited to be doing our job

and exacting retribution

on the enemy for 9/11.

And in fact, I even had pictures

of myself on a ladder

in the bomb bay of a B-1 bomber

signing bombs.

Various obscenities

and things like "This is for my sister

in New York City."

It became clear that phase one

was going to be Afghanistan,
