About the Book:  
Some people dismiss mass protest. The People v. Tony Blair shows the huge demonstrations against the Iraq War in 2003 nearly brought down Blair and almost forced Britain out of the war. Based on interviews and insider accounts, it describes panic in Downing Street and despair in Whitehall. A controversial intervention into the debates about power, media and popular protest, The People v. Tony Blair argues that even a hostile media can be neutralized when a mass movement becomes powerful enough. More information on the book here: http://stopwar.org.uk/index.php/tony-blair-watch/2218-the-people-v-tony-blair-how-mass-murderers-get-away-with-their-war-crimes-and-how-to-stop-them
