The intervention by Allied Forces in Libya has stirred strong emotions across Europe and in the US.
In Brussels thousands of protesters marched through the city showing their support for the rebel uprising and the enforcing of a no-fly zone. The march mirrored a similar gathering in Berlin.
But not everyone backs the military action and some carried banners saying “no war for oil”.
The message was the same in New York and Chicago where fears of repeating the errors of the Iraq war brought Americans onto the streets.
And in Athens the Greek Communist party roundly condemned their country’s involvement. They called on the government not to allow Greek military bases to be used by the participating forces.
