THE RISE OF ANTI-AMERICANISM?

Recently there have been numerous indications that feelings towards America are becoming increasingly negative. International surveys have reported widespread resentment towards various aspects of America . According to the Pew Global Attitudes Survey from March 2003[1], favourable views of the US have dropped from 75% to 48% since mid-2002. Opposition towards US government policy has also increased as a result of the US led war in Iraq . A tangible sign of this occurred in February 2003, when more than a million people took to the streets of London , accompanied by a further 6 million people in 600 cities throughout the world[2].
