Sat., January 27 National March on Washington – Tell Congress to “Stop funding war & occupation!” Reserve your seat today!
Assemble on the National Mall, between 3rd and 7th Streets, at 11 am. March will kick off at 1pm.
This past Saturday had the third highest daily death toll for U.S. troops, at least 25 killed, and an untold number of Iraqis killed, in addition to all the troops & Iraqis wounded and maimed. Bush’s so called surge has only just begun and already the death and carnage is increasing.
As the death toll in Iraq continues to rise -- more than 3,000 U.S. soldiers and more than 600,000 Iraqis -- President Bush has made it clear that he has no intention of bringing the troops home. In fact, he has begun sending over 21,000 more troops to Iraq and is threatening war against Iran and Syria while U.S. gunships have recently shot down Somali people in the streets.
It is equally clear that Congress, despite their clear mandate to bring the troops home, plans to vote for another $130 billion dollars in war spending this spring. The only way we will stop the war is if we stay in the streets. Get on the Action Center For Justice bus to Washington for January 27!
Join us for the January 27 March on Washington, organized by United for Peace and Justice and hundreds of other national and local groups. We will march to demand the Immediate, Complete, Unconditional withdrawal of all occupying forces from Iraq---no timetables, no surge, not another penny for war and occupation. Bring the Troops Home Now -- Money for Jobs, Healthcare, and Education, Not War!
