*Opposition the war is growing.
On December 1, help push forward to a new phase of the antiwar struggle.*
*It is time to shut down Wall Street, headquarters of the corporate
warmongers. *More than 100,000 Iraqi people and 2,100 U.S. soldiers
have died as a result of a bipartisan policy of war and greed.
Politicians will not stop the war–only a massive people’s movement will
bring the troops home.
Let’s observe December 1, the 50th anniversary of the day that Rosa
Parks refused to give up her seat and helped launch the modern Civil
Rights struggle, to launch a national movement against poverty, racism,
and war.
Across the U.S. from Washington, DC to San Francisco, California antiwar
activists, Civil Rights leaders, trade unionists, and community
organizers will take to the streets on December 1 to truly honor Rosa
Parks by continuing the struggle. In New York, people are coming from
all over the region–some are walking out of school, others are leaving
work early–to mass on Wall Street.
It’s time to move from protest to resistance, to say, “Troops Home Now,
or we’ll shut it down!” *Let’s begin by shutting down Wall Street on
December 1–no business as usual. * We need you to come,. to bring your
friends, classmates, and co-workers to demand:
* Bring the Troops Home Now
Cut the War Budget, Not Healthcare, Housing and Education
Justice for Hurricane Katrina Survivors
Military recruiters out of our schools.
Jobs – A Living Wage – the Right to Organize
