Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorIraq Veterans Against the War
On Monday, July 23rd Barack Obama will be hosting a fundraiser at the Fox Theater starting at 4:00pm in Oakland for his 2012 presidential campaign. The commander-in-chief of the most powerful imperial military force in human history and noble peace prize laureate, has the audacity to come into our impoverished community facing school closures, unemployment and other austerity, in an attempt to absorb funds and garner support for his continued his presidency of unjust, illegal and immoral wars and occupations abroad.

Afghans for Peace and SF Bay Iraq Veterans Against the War are calling for an antiwar contingent and action against the President's Oakland fundraiser. Join us in calling for an end to Obama's wars abroad and continued drone targeted assassinations. We will also call for the closure of Guantanamo Bay, an end to torture, freedom for army whistle-blower Bradley Manning and we will protest against an endless host of other injustices.

We will meet at Oscar Grant plaza, 14th and Broadway, on Monday July 23rd at 3:30pm for a rally and then we will march on the Fox Theater.

We call on all local antiwar groups and allies to endorse and participate in this action. Please forward, spread the word and mobilize members and supporters of your organizations. Let's make a powerful statement for peace on Monday!
