'Don't Attack Iran' and 'No Trident' Demonstration

Saturday saw a 'Don't Attack Iran' and 'No Trident' demonstration' brought to Trafalgar Square by the Stop The War Coalition and CND respectively.

This is a video showing clips of the day to the song 'War (what is it good for?)' by Ugly Rumours (also the name of Tony Blair's band at university) that was sung at the event. This release of the song made it to No.6 in the music charts the following week. How come? Perhaps a clue is given in what the singer asks the crowd to do after he finishes the song (see video below)!
