WE celebrate and hold up Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as the embodiment of human resistance to economic, political and physical violence and injustice on every level; fighting racism, classism, sexism, oppression, torture and war at every turn;
WE demand that the United States and all others involved in the brutal and inhumane war/assault on Iraq, "End the Occupation; bring the troops home!"
WE stand for the defense and preservation of our civil liberties, including but not limited to, the right to speak, the right to assemble, the right to organize, the right to vote, the right of association, the right to privacy and the right to counsel and a fair and expedient trial.
WE call on the diverse progressive community to connect the struggles of many and focus our energy together to achieve common goals.
