NATIONAL TEACH-IN ON IRAQ: How Can We End This War?

Mission High School, 3750 18th Street (at Dolores)
$5 requested donation; Free for students; No one turned away for lack of funds.

Two years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the country continues to bleed and suffer. The death toll soars on all sides and especially among civilians. The cost of the war mounts daily as vital services are cut at home. But many questions remain: Did the January 2005 elections improve the situation in Iraq? Is the US troop presence in Iraq helping stabilize the country, or is it at the root of Iraq's deadly violence? And what are the true costs of the war at home - its impact on military families and returning veterans, its $200+ billion price tag, and the looting of our economy by militarist corporations?

Join people throughout the country as we consider these issues and others at teach-ins in San Francisco, Washington, DC, and Ann Arbor, marking the 40th anniversary of the first Vietnam War teach-in in 1965.

Featured Speakers include:

oRahul Mahajan, Anti-war Activist and Author of Full Spectrum Dominance: U.S. Power in Iraq and Beyond

oCindy Sheehan, mother of fallen Iraq war soldier, Co-Founder of Gold Star Parents for Peace, and member of Military Families Speak Out
