On the evening of Sunday, July 3, the Stop the War Coalition organised a moving Naming of the Dead at the Monument on Calton Hill, Edinburgh. Ordinary citizens, young and old, as well as political figures and well known personalities, such as Billy Bragg and Julie Christie, took turns in a steady stream to read the names of children, women, soldiers and others who have been killed in the war and occupation of Iraq. Many denounced Bush and Blair and called that they should be accountable for their crimes.
The media, however, concentrated on an anarchist demonstration in Edinburgh, which involved significantly fewer people. Thus the authorities hyped this demonstration, highlighting some quite insignificant incidents of violence. At the same time, it had the effect of diverting attention from other events, and the media responded as though it had been the work of provocateurs.
