[For a list of demonstrations planned throughout the world, see the web site: www.march-in-march.org]

Three years ago, a coalition guided by the U.S. government launched a war against Iraq. Today, the reasons to mobilize against war are more evident than ever.

On March 18, 2006, all of Europe will demonstrate, along with the U.S. and global anti-war movements:

  • for the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of all foreign troops from Iraq
  • against the concept of preemptive war, its extension to Syria, to Iran and the Middle East, for a peaceful solution to the Kurdish issue
  • for an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestine territories and East Jerusalem, for the implementation of all international resolutions, for a just peace between Israel and Palestine, for the creation of an independent Palestine state
  • for disarmament, the reduction of military spending and the elimination of foreign military bases and weapons of mass destruction
  • for an alternative foreign policy, which rejects the neo-liberal model and works to build relationships between peoples
  • for respect of human rights, the defense of civil and democratic freedoms against repression, an end to torture, illegal detention and secret prisons
  • for freedom of movement for migrants

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!"
