March 19 – 8th Anniversary of “Shock & Awe”
Join us in the streets to demand an END to the death and destruction of these wars for empire. Gates has announced extended US occupation of Afghanistan, and now Obama has made indefinite detention his own. Taking to the streets against these crimes is more important than ever. Too many people in this country think the war in Iraq is over because troops have been moved to Afghanistan and the trail of US military deaths has slowed. But the US occupation of Iraq is still 50,000 troops strong. It is huge and permanent, unless it is stopped by US public opinion and action.
Meet us at NOON on Saturday, March 19, at Congress and Michigan Avenue, Chicago, for a permitted rally and march.
It’s time to put political opposition to these wars back on the map, in a mass, visible, and determined way!
Liz from our Chicago chapter writes, ““The anti-war movement screamed for justice for Iraq. We called for those in the military to resist, to whistle-blow the shit out of these war criminals. Now the US military could sentence Bradley Manning to death. I feel I owe him more than I can explain.“
Find out about the “Rally for Bradley!” in Quantico, VA, on March 20, and forward widely.
Watch and share “Bradley Manning: The Forgotten Man,” an Australian documentary.
