End the occupation of Iraq! No war against Iran!Added to the calendar on Wednesday Jan 30th, 2008 11:29 AM
Last year, several thousand UCSB students, staff, faculty and community members held one of the largest national protests against the war on Feb. 15. It sparked nation-wide actions at dozens of other campuses and was a small but real step in getting the US military out of Iraq.
This year we're going to mark UCSB's uprising a few days early (preemptive!) with a massive rally on February 12th!
Join us at Pardall Tunnel at 12pm to rally against the war and occupation of Iraq!
1) We have been lied to by our government!
2) UCSB and the Santa Barbara community directly profit from war and militarism!
3) You stand to learn more about power, the chains which bind you, and the means by which you may break them in this one day of protest than an entire year in the classroom!
4) Our power does not rest with politicians in Washington, our power does not rest with politicians in Sacramento, our power does not rest with politicians in Santa Barbara. We are powerful on our feet in the streets!
5) Another world is not only possible but necessary!
Got reasons of your own? Great! Spread the word. Feb. 12 will be historic! Come make history!
