full description & details:
Why demonstrate on the 3rd anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq? Because 3 years is 3 years too many. Because more 100,000 Iraqis have been killed and their country has been destroyed. Because more than 2,000 US soldiers have died,and thousands wounded. Because the Iraq war is not just a "bad policy:" the US has its sights set on any country that defies its drive towards Empire: Iran, Syria, Cuba, Venezuela, Palestine... Because its a racist war that demonizes Arab and Muslim people and diverts funds from communities of color and the poor here at home. Because the US is spending $200 million a day on war, instead of jobs, education, healthcare and housing. Because the politicians won't stop the war for us. Come out for the Seattle rally and March, Saturday, March 18. Gather at 12 noon in Westlake Park.
