We will march together to say “No Colonial-type Wars and Occupations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Haiti!" We will march together to say "No War Against Iran!” We will march together to say “No War for Empire Anywhere!”
Instead of war, we will demand funds so that every person can have a job, free and universal health care, decent schools, and affordable housing.
March 20 is the seventh anniversary of the criminal war of aggression launched by Bush and Cheney against Iraq(They are still blaming Bush for everything even though this is Obamas wars now). One million or more Iraqis have died. Tens of thousands of U.S. troops have lost their lives or been maimed, and continue to suffer a whole host of enduring problems from this terrible war. (Why are they counting the Iraqi's that were killed by Saddam Hussein in that million Iraqi's killed?)
This is the time for united action. The slogans on banners may differ, but all those who carry them should be marching shoulder to shoulder.
