Two and a half years after the invasion of Iraq the brutal nightmare continues with no end in sight. The majority in this country believe that this war should never have happened. Over 200,000 marched in Washington, DC on September 24 demanding an end to this criminal war of conquest. Millions more now reject the lies coming out of Washington. We are making a difference! Now WE have the initiative.
A catastrophe of massive proportions has been unfolding on the Gulf Coast. At least a thousand are believed to have died and many thousands are now homeless. Natural disasters can=12t be stopped. But what happens before, during, and after them is not inevitable. The deaths in Katrina's path
were no more necessary than the deaths of thousands in Iraq.
We must unite! The policy of waging war for control of oil resources and the policy decisions leading to the social catastrophe unfolding on the Gulf Coast point to a consistent assault on and disregard for the lives, safety, and needs of working families.
Plans are being made to organize a massive March and Rally on Boston Common on October 29th, 2005 to End the Occupation of Iraq! We encourage all antiwar organizations, students, youth, groups in the community, unionists, and anyone in the New England region who wants to organize to Sop the War to join with us at our next planning meeting.
Join us in planning this action and in organizing a broad outreach campaign. The challenge before us is to unite, plan, and then mobilize our opposition into a strong mass movement that can turn millions more against the war =
and fight for a social policy that serves human needs- not conquest, occupation, and domination.
According to Donald Rumsfeld the war could last as long as 12 more years.
How many more will die in a war that was a lie from start to finish?
How many more billions of our tax dollars will be drained into a war to control the oil resources of Iraq?
How many more billions will be looted from vital social needs such as hurricane relief, reconstruction, jobs, education, and healthcare or libraries, firehouses, childcare, eldercare, or Social Security?
