Stop the Wars
6th Anniversary of the Iraq War

March 21, 5:30-7:30pm
Piazza Navona

This week marks the sixth anniversary of the start of the Iraq War– which has resulted in the deaths of more than 4,000 Americans and countless Iraqis (over one million).

Join us this Saturday, March 21st, at Piazza Navona between 5:30 and 7:30 pm. to both mark this sad occasion and also make our voices heard against continued U.S. military presence in Iraq, and the U.S. administration’s plans to increase its military might in Afghanistan.

This is no time for complacency -- it’s been 6 years too many, and surely some lessons have been learned!

In the U.S., the anti-war movement is gearing up for a “March on the Pentagon”, on the same day. Various coalitions, organizations, and networks are joining together in a March 21 National Coalition to bring people from all walks of life and from all cities across the United States to take part in this important March on the Pentagon. Simultaneous demonstrations are taking place in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

More than 1,300 organizations and individuals have now endorsed the March on the Pentagon to say “Bring the Troops Home NOW!”. The thousands who march will demand “From Iraq to Afghanistan to Palestine, Occupation is a Crime” and “We Need Jobs and Education, Not Wars and Occupation.” They will insist on an end to the war threats and economic sanctions against Iran. They will say no to the illegal U.S. program of detention and torture. Our group in Rome will join those protesting in the U.S. in making these demands and in trying to get the message across.

So, on the first day of Spring, spring into action and join us at:
Piazza Navona
Saturday, March 21, 5:30-7:30pm
(See map)

Please let us know if you plan to make it or if you can help with ideas and/or setting up: info@peaceandjustice.it or 320 6359555

See you Saturday!

Upshot of our Nov. 9th group discussion on current politics:

It wasn't the Russians that got us Trump. Or Comey. Or even the massive GOP election fraud. It was the DNC.*

To learn how to stop the DNC from delivering us another Trump, read Autopsy: the Democratic Party in Crisis.

Iraq Deaths Estimator
Did someone tell you that U.S. military intervention in Iraq was over? Not true: we're at it again. This time the pretext to drop bombs is "curbing ISIS" (which was created by the U.S. in the first place, to overturn al-Malaki in Iraq and then Assad in Syria, and is now out of hand. Like what happened to "our" creature al Qaeda in Afghanistan). And the death toll continues to rise...
Write your senators and tell them: "Enough! U.S. out!! Iraq has shown it can curb ISIS by itself!"
