This chapter concentrates on the communicative dimension of the demonstrations against the war on Iraq. It first analyzes the responses of the protesters to open-ended survey questions to understand how they express their views and motives. It investigates how organizers, representatives of movement groups, and speakers expressed their views and claims during the demonstrations. Finally, it looks more specifically at the media coverage of the expected war on Iraq and analyzes mass media reports and government positions.

Keywords:   communicative dimension, demonstrations, Iraq War, demonstration participants, demonstration speakers, media coverage, mass media reports, governmental positions
