The momentum for the anti war demonstration in San Francisco is growing. Volunteers are needed!
On Saturday, October 27, the growing antiwar sentiment that exists in the United States will again be reflected in regional and local demonstrations nationwide. The massive, regional anti-war protest in San Francisco will gather at 11:00 am at the Civic Center for an opening rally. At 12:30 pm, there will be a march to Dolores Park where there will be a closing rally and peace and justice convergence.

During the march to Dolores Park a symbolic die in will take place to bring home the 2 million Iraqis who have died, the 500,000 who are now refugees and the nearly 4,000 U.S. soldiers who have died for an occupation that only benefits weapons manufacturers and oil corporations.

The demonstration in San Francisco, initiated by the ANSWER Coalition, and being organized by the October 27 Coalition has become a rallying point for the region's antiwar forces. Among the endorsers are the seven Bay Area Central Labor Councils, California Federation of Teachers and many union locals, the Episcopal Diocese of California, National Council of Arab Americans, Iraq Veterans Against the War, FMLN of El Salvador, Barrio Unidos, Cindy Sheehan, Pride at Work-SF, Free Palestine Alliance, Coalicion Primero de Mayo, World Can't Wait, CodePink Women for Peace, Campus Anti-war Network, United for Peace and Justice, US Labor Against War, the ANSWER Coalition and more than 140 other organizations. Buses and car caravans are coming from all over Northern California.

The event will begin at 11:00 am at the Civic Center. For a complete list of endorsers and to volunteeer go to or call 415-821-6545.
