|all four corners of the intersection of 16th Street & Broadway, IN SACRAMENTO|
Please come to 16th & Broadway to protest the unjust war and occupation and the most corrupt American presidency in history!
Your tax dollars continue to fund the deceptively planned, illegal, unjust, immoral catastrophe that Bush absurdly calls "a war on terror."
After roughly $300 billion in tax dollars, and still counting, we now have civil war in Iraq, over 100,000 dead Iraqi men, women and children, nearly 2,400 killed U.S. soldiers, and more people in the world hate Americans now than ever before. We've also been forcibly robbed of our civil rights under the pretext of national security but in reality to stifle dissent.
Our tax dollars also continue to fund Israel's ethnic cleansing campaign against Palestinians--exactly the same U.S. policy that motivated the WTC disaster. This is because pro-Israel lobbies like AIPAC unduly influence U.S. Congress. Recently, Palestinians elected new leaders in a highly monitored, legitimate democratic election (as opposed to our own). But the U.S. and Israeli governments didn't like the outcome, so Israel has been pounding Gaza with artillery ever since, and murdering Palestinian children, while the U.S. has again turned a blind eye.
This is "Your Tax Dollars At Work!"
As the tax filing deadline approaches, there's no better time to protest the wasted and immoral use of our funds. We're entitled to and expect a responsible use of our tax dollars, but we're getting one of the worst deals possible!
Please come out and protest the war, the occupation, the U.S. military presence in Iraq, the Bush administration's corrupt policies, the detriment they've caused us, and Israel's egregious acts against Palestinians.
Bring signs, banners, displays and attention-getters. We expect a great turnout, so please don't miss it.
