Sept 28: Mass Anti-War March in NYC
PLEASE FORWARD AND CIRCULATE THIS
THE ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT IS BACK ON THE STREETS IN NYC!
Opposition to the war and occupation is growing. The Bush Administration,
stripped of all credibility, is facing a growing crisis. It spends over a
billion dollars every week to maintain the colonial occupation of Iraq and
$17 million dollars every day to subsidize the brutal occupation of
Palestine. Meanwhile, in the US, jobs are disappearing, budgets for health
care, housing, and education are being slashed, and the economy is entering
a tailspin.
Across the country, the people are rising to demand an end to the
Occupation.
THOUSANDS IN NYC WILL MARCH TO END OCCUPATION
In solidarity with the call issued by the Arab progressive movement, the
European peace movement, and others who are holding activities timed to
coincide with the third anniversary of the second Palestinian Intifada
(which began on September 28, 2000) thousands in New York City will unite
around the slogans:
END OCCUPATION in Iraq, Palestine, and Everywhere!
No intervention in Afghanistan, Korea, Philippines, Africa and Latin
America!
No to Empire! No to Colonialism!”
BRING THE TROOPS HOME NOW!
We will gather at Columbus Circle at 1:00pm and hold a mass march down
Broadway, toward Times Square
