Code Pink SF-Bay Area joins a coalition of peace groups calling for nationwide candlelight vigils mourning the deaths of 1,000+ U.S. soldiers and thirteen thousand Iraqi civilians. (See text below.)
Meet at UN Plaza; Market Street (btwn 7th and Hyde), San Francisco
Thursday, September 9th.
Bring candles, wear pink and/or black. If you cannot join us at the UN Plaza, organize a vigil in your own neighborhood.
One Thousand Young Americans Have Died in Iraq, Almost Seven Thousand Are Maimed, and Many Thousands of Iraqis Have Died. The President Won't Mourn Our Dead, But We Will. Please join CODEPINK and hundreds of other peace and justice groups to say: Enough to Endless War and Suffering, Bring Them Home NOW.
TAKE ACTION: ORGANIZE A PEACE VIGIL THIS THURSDAY, SEPT. 9, 2004!
We will remember the 1,000+ US servicemen and women who have died in Iraq.
We will remember the many thousands of Iraqis--civilians and combatants, men and women, children and the elderly--who have been killed.
We know that the current administration has plunged us into this unjust and unjustifiable war, driven by greed for oil and lust for power and fueled by lie after lie.
We want an end to the occupation so the Iraqi people can determine their own destiny free from foreign interference and control.
We want our troops brought home now. And we want them treated right when they return. Give them the benefits they were promised and give them the help they will need to heal their bodies, their minds and their spirits.
We will remember, honor and mourn. We will not forget!
