Stop the Wars
6th Anniversary of the Iraq War
March 21, 5:30-7:30pm
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)

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!"
