Stop The Wars At Home and Abroad - Bring The Troops Home Now!
Mon Apr 11 2011 (Updated 04/12/11)
Dolores Park Anti-War Rally & Mission District March in San Francisco Say Stop the Wars
An anti-war rally and march was held in San Francisco on April 10th in Dolores Park. For approximately two hours speakers from the stage spoke out against war and related political problems. Speakers included Afghan MP Malalai Joya, who was suspended from the Parliament of Afghanistan for denouncing the warlords and the US/NATO war and occupation. After the rally, protesters went on a mile-long march through the Mission, followed by a shorter group of speakers back in Dolores Park. Their message was clear: stop all the wars, bring all the troops home now; stop the attacks on workers; use the war money for human needs at home such as healthcare, housing, education, and jobs; stop the U.S. government's interference in other country's affairs, especially in the Middle East; and free political prisoners. The rally was sponsored by the United Antiwar Committee (UNAC) and endorsed by hundreds of social justice organizations.

Patricia Jackson writes: We keep marching, maintaining our energy, and building on resistance born in the Middle East and Wisconsin. At the well-organized rally and march Sunday, April 10, we heard from speakers about brothers and sisters involved in social justice around the globe. We learned that ILWU Local 10 workers who shut down the ports here in solidarity with the April 4 We Are One march are under attack for their actions and need our support. We heard a messages from political prisoners Mumia Abu Jamal and Lynne Stewart. We heard another side of the "humanitarian" efforts in Libya. Calls for boycotting all GE products; makers of nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants; calls to support the Irvine 11 students now threatened with jail time for merely protesting a talk on their campus by the Israeli Ambassador; that activists in Chicago are facing a Grand Jury for anti-war activism, and we demanded to know what the military is doing to Bradley Manning. As we marched from Dolores Park through the Mission, people on the sidewalks cheered and drivers honked horns in support.
