When The World Said No To War is a photography exhibition and peace education forum inspired by the 2003 demonstrations against the war on Iraq.
When The World Said No To War was conceived as a tribute to the spirit of those 30 million people, to their belief that if enough people spoke out, governments would listen and the world would change. It is a tribute to the fact that this belief still persists and is growing every day.
It was opened by John Pilger in Sydney, Australia in February 2003 and is being held in Edinburgh in October 2006 in conjunction with the Word Power Book Fair, supported by the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre.
Karen Adler, coordinator of the project, is embarking on the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage in Spain on the 28th May 2006. She will be walking from Pamplona to Santiago, a distance of 402 miles and is doing the pilgrimage as a sponsored walk.
The money raised will be used for various aspects of the project, including venue hire and technical support.
