NO to Fake Sovereignty
Bring the Troops Home Now!
Union Square, San Francisco
On June 30, there will be demonstrations in many cities and countries on the day of the so-called "turn-over of sovereignty" in Iraq. The only real turn-over of power on June 30 will be from outgoing U.S. dictator, L. Paul Bremer, to incoming U.S. dictator John Negroponte, the new U.S. "ambassador" to Iraq.
The UN Security Council resolution passed this week through a combination of U.S. threats and hidden deals is an illustration of the old saying that "diplomacy is perjury." It endorses the "formation of a sovereign Iraqi interim government" headed by CIA asset Iyad Allawi, and states that on June 30, states that on that date "the occupation will end" and Iraq will regain its "sovereignty."
In reality, more than 175,000 U.S. and U.S.-led troops will continue to occupy Iraq. U.S. troop levels will be maintained at 138,000 until at least the end of 2005, and may be increased according to Bush and the generals. The occupying forces will continue to kill and die for the sake of a war based entirely on lies.
The only solution to the crisis in Iraq is to BRING THE TROOPS HOME NOW!
Join us on June 30 to call for a real end to the war and occupation in Iraq.
