Bring the troops home now!
End the occupation of Iraq!
Money for jobs, education, healthcare and housing - Not war!

Boston Common Bandstand - 12 noon

On March 20, 2004, protests will take place all around the world on the one year anniversary of the U.S. bombing and invasion of Iraq. People are organizing on a global scale to demand an end to the occupation of Iraq and an immediate withdrawal of U.S. military forces from the country.

Since the invasion began, hundreds of U.S. and British soldiers and unknown thousands of Iraqi people have been killed. The Iraqi people have clearly stated that occupation is not liberation - that they want the foreign soldiers occupying their country to leave not tomorrow, but today. Growing numbers of U.S. soldiers and their families are calling to bring the troops home now. Increasing numbers of people in the United States are helping to build a movement against the occupation as they fight cuts to education, healthcare, job programs, housing and other social service programs.

On October 25, 100,000 people took to the streets of Washington DC to call for an immediate end to the occupation and to bring the troops home now. Tens of thousands more demonstrated in San Francisco and other U.S. cities, and in cities around the world. On that day, the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition began to circulate in the U.S. the international call for demonstrations on March 20 that has being made by groups around the world. We urge all groups and organizations in the US to support this international call and to work together to show the power of a united movement on a global scale.

Begin planning now to hold a demonstration in your city on March 20, 2004. Hundreds of cities around the world will be issuing, circulating and joining this call.

We will have flyers, stickers and other organizing material available in the coming days.

  • In New York City, the demonstration is planned to assemble at 12 noon at Times Square with a march to the United Nations. Call 212-633-6646 for details about upcoming city-wide planning meetings and for more information.
  • In Washington DC, the demonstration is planned to gather at the White House at 12 noon. Call 202-544-3389 for more information.
  • For information about the San Francisco demonstration call 415-821-6545.
  • In Los Angeles, the demonstration is planned to assemble at 12 noon at Hollywood and Vine. Call 213-487-2368 for more information.

Peace not bombs, books not bombs, bread not bombs. Give of yourself, make beautiful trinkets and bobbles use plenty of sparkles and let a rainbow flourish.
