Help Make History on the 5th Anniversary of the War
Iraq Occupation 5th Anniversary U.S. Mobilization Committee (Member
Groups Listed Below)

Join us on Saturday, March 15th for a massive demonstration in
Washington, D.C., at which we will exercise our rights to assemble and
speak on behalf of the majority of Americans, the majority of Iraqis,
the majority of U.S. troops, and the majority of people around the
world who all say: U.S. Out of Iraq! This gathering will support the
Iraq Veterans Against The War Winter Soldier Testimonial.

We call on people from throughout the United States, in solidarity
with those planning similar events around the world, to come together
in massive numbers on March 15th and 19th, 2008, to demand an
immediate end to the U.S. occupation of Iraq. To endorse this event,
click here.

The events we create will mark the end of the fifth year and the start
of the sixth year of this criminal, unprovoked invasion and
occupation. Over a million Iraqis have been killed, and tens of
thousands of U.S. service members have been killed or wounded. The
occupation must end, and together we can end it!

Join us on Wednesday, March 19th, the anniversary of the invasion, for
massive civil disobedience in Washington, D.C., and at the local level
all around the United States. On this day, members of Congress will be
in their districts. We will provide you with the resources you need to
engage in effective nonviolent actions at locations of your choosing,
including congressional district offices. On the same day the
permanent military-industrial complex will be at work in Washington,
and we intend to bring to bear on it the most massive, most creative,
and most disciplined nonviolent resistance it has ever seen. Training
sessions will be provided from the 15th to 18th. Toward these ends we
have formed a short-term committee.
