4th Anniversary of the
Invasion of Iraq -
Four Years Too Many!
Protest plus "Fax the Facts" fax blast
U.S. Embassy, Rome, Italy
Tuesday, March 20,
Tuesday, March 20, 2007 marks the tragic 4th anniversary of the invasion
of Iraq. Across the U.S. protests, demonstrations, sit-ins and vigils will
be held to call for the immediate withdrawal from Iraq. The message is
4 YEARS IS 4 TOO MANY!
Please join us in Rome on Tuesday, March 20 for two actions:
a protest at
the U.S. Embassy from 4:30-6:30pm, and
a "Fax the Facts" fax blast
throughout the day from all over Italy.
The protest in front of the U.S. Embassy aims to inform the Bush
Administration, via our Ambassador, of three simple facts that they seem
not to realize: -- the war is destroying innocent lives: our kids' and
untold numbers of Iraqis', -- the war is worsening our security, -- the
war is busting our economy. THE OCCUPATION MUST END!
We have tried to convey these simple facts to Ambassador Spogli in seven
letters sent over the past year and a half: he has never deigned to
answer. And lately the top U.S. diplomat in Italy has been using his
influence for anything but diplomacy, from the letter to the Italian
government urging increased troop levels in Afghanistan to pressuring the
Italian government to approve the new U.S. military base in Vicenza.
Fax the Facts: This time let's make sure he gets the message. During the day on March
20th -- from your home, office, or wherever, in Rome and beyond -- we're asking you to fax the
Embassy with one easy click from our web site.
Anti-War Protest: Then in the afternoon, from 4:30 to 6:30, let's all be out in front of the
Embassy with a megaphone so he can hear us from his window while
passers-by, tourists and Italian citizens send faxes from a mobile station
we'll be setting up there, to let the Bush Admnistration know that the international community
has had enough as well.
More details to come on the protest and our "Fax
the Facts" blast. In the meantime, if you'd like to get involved with the
organizing for March 20, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

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!"
