March 2008 ushered in the sixth year of war and occupation "without end" on Iraq. In an act of arrogance and impunity, Congress in a bipartisan vote approved another $162 billion in funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Stepped up threats against Iran and the increased likelihood of a U.S. troop "surge" into Afghanistan point to an imperative for action and an independent voice from the anti-war movement.

In light of these developments, grassroots forces from around the country gather together at the end of June for the National Assembly to End the Iraq War and Occupation in Cleveland, Ohio. At the conference an action plan for the months ahead was discussed and approved in a democratic vote. As part of this plan, over 95% voted in favor of supporting pre-election protests being organized in cities and and localities around the country on October 11, 2008.

It was on October 11, 2002 that Congress approved the "Iraq War Resolution" granting the Bush administration authorization to invade Iraq. The weeks ahead promise to be filled with debate as the election campaign gears up. Instead of being spectators who watch the media pundits put their spin on the political pronouncements of the candidates, the October 11 protests present us with an opportunity to be engaged in injecting our agenda, the anti-war agenda, into the intensifying debate.

Please join us in an initial planning meeting as we prepare a Boston protest demanding the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of all occupation forces from iraq and the closing of all military bases. All are invited. Looking forward to seeing you there.
