The tenth anniversary of the huge march against George Bush and Tony Blair's illegal war in Iraq, which saw 14 million people take to the streets worldwide, was marked with a vigil at the Nye Bevan statue on Queen Street in Cardiff.
On February 15 2003, two million people from all walks of life brought London to a standstill and the police gave up trying to control the crowd. The city belonged to us.
Even though international criminals Bush and Blair are still at large and the Iraq war went ahead, there was no defeat for the peace movement.
Countless thousands who had never before demonstrated made their voices heard that day and have since continued to speak out for peace.
They will be with us at Aldermaston bomb factory in March to protest against the grotesque squandering of billions of pounds on the new Trident missile system, which is crippling our economy.
They will be with us at Faslane nuclear submarine base in Scotland.
They will be with us protesting against the arms trade, which inflames the Middle East by pouring its weapons into the conflict zones there.
As the government slinks out of Afghanistan's costly, useless war, our message to our politicians is clear.
We are still here and we will never give up on our quest for an end to the nuclear arms race and for a more peaceful world.
