U.S. Out of Iraq! No War on Iran! Protest in State's Capital, Sacramento
Donald Trump has ordered hundreds and perhaps thousands of more U.S. troops to the Middle East in response to the massive protests in Iraq following the latest U.S. aerial assault that killed scores of Iraqis. The protesters siege of the U.S. Embassy has ended as of now but the recent U.S. bombings of Iraq reveal the criminal, imperial character of the U.S. occupation of Iraq.
More than a million Iraqis have died during the past 28 years as a consequence of U.S. occupation, bombings, and sanctions. Tens of thousands of U.S. troops have either been killed or suffered life-changing wounds. The U.S. government has spent more than $3 trillion dollars in the on-going occupation and bombing of this oil-rich country.
In response, as a part of the national day of action this Saturday, January 4th at 4 PM
at 9th Street and K Street, please join
