New England Mobilization to End the War in Iraq
On Saturday, October 27th, people from all walks of life will gather in Boston for a massive New England regional demonstration, part of a nationally coordinated day of protest against the war in Iraq called by United for Peace and Justice.
Organizations across the region are working to build the October 27th mobilization. Please join us! We the People must end this war! Together we can build a social movement that can stop this war and shift the political agenda in this country to further global justice and fund human needs.
Rally starts at 12:00 Noon at Boston Common
March to Copley Square starts at 2:00 PM
Bring All The Troops Home Now!
End All Funding for the Iraq War Now!
Support Our Communities, Fund Human Needs!
No Attack on Iran!
Stop the Attacks on Civil Liberties, Defend Human Rights!
Momentum is building toward Saturday, October 27th — from Orlando to Seattle, from New York to New Orleans. On that day, people from all walks of life will gather in 11 cities around the country in a national expression of the breadth and depth of antiwar sentiment in this nation. For many people, it will be their first step in transforming their antiwar feelings into antiwar action. Regional actions will enable much larger numbers of people to participate.
People everywhere want the war to end, but Washington has failed to take decisive action. With each passing month, the Iraq disaster claims the lives of nearly 100 service people and countless Iraqis as it drains 12 billion of our tax-dollars. Our communities are neglected and suffer the consequences.
Cities participating are Los Angeles, Jonesborough, Orlando, New York City, New Orleans, Seattle, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago and our own Boston – the people will speak: We want this war to end now!
