The largest demonstration was in Madrid where organizers estimated around 400,000 protestors …
It was one of around 100 anti-war demonstrations across Spain involving cities including Barcelona, Valencia and Seville.
Protestors walked to a memorial for the 191 people killed in March 11, 2004 train bombings by Islamist radicals.
The bombers said they targeted Madrid because of then Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar’s move to send Spanish troops to Iraq in support of President Bush.
Aznar was voted out of power days after the attacks, along with his conservative Popular Party.
Spain’s incoming socialist government, led by Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, pulled Spanish troops out of Iraq.
Zapatero has refused to send additional Spanish troops to Afghanistan, despite demands from NATO members.
