Organizing Meeting for March 20 Anti-War Protest

Money for Jobs, Education, Healthcare—Not War!
U.S. Out of Afghanistan and Iraq Now!
Free Palestine!
U.S. Hands Off Latin America!
Haiti Needs Aid, Not Occupation!

Mass Marches and Rallies Planned in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco

The Mar. 6 meeting is planned to be relatively brief, followed by mass outreach. All anti-war individuals and organizations are welcome to attend.

Join us for the second meeting of the Bay Area March 20 Coalition. March 20 will mark the 7th anniversary of the criminal invasion and occupation of Iraq. The Obama administration and the Pentagon are escalating the wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and extending their aggression into Yemen and Somalia. The brutal Israeli colonial occupation of Palestine continues, fully backed by Washington. At the same time, U.S. intervention against the progressive governments in Latin America is intensifying.

While students in California are facing a 32% tuition hike (which will prevent hundreds of thousands of working class and poor students from going to college), and we are told that there is no money for true health care reform, the real Pentagon budget for next year will be over $1.4 trillion!

A year ago, millions of people celebrated the end of both the Bush administration and the 220-year streak of exclusively well-to-do white males allowed to occupy the highest office. But what the last year has reaffirmed is that a change of top officials alone cannot and will not bring the change we really need. That can only be accomplished by a powerful movement of the people.
