Thousands of students in Australia abandoned school on 5 March to take to the streets to protest against any war against Iraq.
The biggest crowd - about 10,000! - was in Sydney. Police estimate 7,000 turned out in Adelaide, 1,000 in Canberra and hundreds in Perth, Hobart and Brisbane.

The Australian government - in defiance of public opinion - is backing the invasion of Iraq.
