We Are Many is a documentary film about the February 2003 global day of protest against the Iraq War, directed by Amir Amirani. Social movement researchers have described the 15 February protest as "the largest protest event in human history. Surprisingly, Tony Blair's ally Lord Falconer says the anti-war march did change things:

"If a million people come out on the streets in the future, then what government is going to say they are wrong now?"[1][2]

The film's title is an allusion to a line in Percy Bysshe Shelley's poem "The Masque of Anarchy".[3]
