Resist the War Machine! International Day of Action

twig's picture

via Chris Hedges at Truthdig, international day of action by AnswerCoalition, with dozens of organizations coming together for worldwide protests:

Saturday, March 19, 2011, the anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, will be an international day of action against the war machine.

March 19 is the 8th anniversary of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Iraq today remains occupied by 50,000 U.S. soldiers and tens of thousands of foreign mercenaries.

The war in Afghanistan is raging. The U.S. is invading and bombing Pakistan. The U.S. is financing endless atrocities against the people of Palestine, relentlessly threatening Iran and bringing Korea to the brink of a new war.

While the United States will spend $1 trillion for war, occupation and weapons in 2011, 30 million people in the United States remain unemployed or severely underemployed, and cuts in education, housing and healthcare are imposing a huge toll on the people.

Protest and resistance actions will take place in cities and towns across the United States. Scores of organizations are coming together. Demonstrations are scheduled for San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and more.

The times listed above are just a guess. Check the AnswerCoalition website for your city's announcement.

I'll be at the one here, in LA. I don't know why, but it's very hard to get anyone to do things like this here. Maybe I'll take my camera and post pics of the tens of demonstrators who show up.
