Students & Youth Mobilize Against War & Racism
Initiated by: The Global Resistance Network and Youth & Student A.N.S.W.E.R.
Monday, March 14 to Friday, March 18
On Saturday, March 19, people in the U.S. and all over the world will march against the U.S.-led occupation of Iraq and colonial occupation everywhere. During the week of the second anniversary of the "shock and awe" invasion of Iraq, our generation will make its presence felt.
Help build the militant and vibrant youth and student movement that has grown continuously over the past three years. We have opposed the Bush administration's cynical manipulation of the events of September 11 to carry out wars and occupations abroad, and attacks on people's rights at home. Tens of thousands of young people have mobilized for mass antiwar demonstrations, and have organized walkouts, sit-ins and more at their schools and on their campuses.
The recent January 20th, CounterInaugural student walkouts were a big step in the reconsolidation of the Student and Youth Movement. Students walked out of class in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Tucson, Boulder, Philadelphia and many other cities in resistance to Bush's right-wing policies of war and repression.
Let's continue to take the youth and student struggle to a new level. We, as students and youth, need a future with jobs, healthcare, housing, and education, not war and occupation.
Organize a protest against military recruiters, a teach-in, a campus demonstration, an educational forum, a walkout, a sit-in, a rally or other antiwar activity at your school the week of March 14 to March 18. Join students all over the U.S. for a week of campus resistance to war, racism, greed and all forms of injustice. Then, on March 19, mobilize for local and regional demonstrations taking place across the country.
Let other students and everyone else around the globe know about a scheduled antiwar event at your high school or college campus the week of March 14 to March 18. To connect with other students and youth fill out the action form. By filling out a form your local event will be posted so that other youth and students, as well as other activists, in your area can support the activity
