Click on links below to hear extracts from some of the significant speeches explaining why the war is wrong, and that it must be stopped. It can be stopped. If soldiers don't go to war, if workers don't make and ship war materials, if government doesn't strip money from the public to buy mercenaries and monopolize power, war can't happen.
