This is viewer supported news

Western media attention remains riveted on the U.S.-Europe split over attacking Iraq.

But the vast majority of rest of the world is also opposed. We just heard Nelson Mandela’s views, about how the African Union issued a unanimous statement about the war, and about how South African President Thabo Mbeki will be attempting to help Iraq disarm.

We go now to South America, to Porto Alegre, Brazil, where the World Social Forum was recently held.

World-renowned Indian author Arundhati Roy spoke out against Bush’s plans to attack Iraq. She won the Booker Prize for her book, 'The God of Small Things.'
