Senator Kerry Libya Protest 6-27-2011 003.jpg
Boston, Mass.-June 27, 2011:
About 25 peace activists protested against the US wars on Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan in front of Sen. John Kerry's Boston office.
Leaflets were handed out to passersby and people with a bull horn led the protesters in anti-war chants. 3 homeland security police officers and an attack dog stood guard at the entry of 1 Bowdoin Square, where Kerry's office is-but they did not approach the protesters who picketed some 50 yards away.

From the event announcement:
On March 19, 2011, exactly eight years after the U.S. government launched the invasion of Iraq, the U.S. led an unprovoked attack on the sovereign country of Libya. Many civilian deaths have resulted, the infrastructure of Libya has been severely damaged and over 500,000 migrant workers from northern Africa and around the world have been forced to flee the country. This military assault on Libya continues to this day, now being carried out through NATO which is a U.S. led alliance. (The British newspaper the Daily Mail estimates that the war is currently costing U.S. taxpayers $2 million/day.) This military attack has nothing to do with “saving lives” and everything to do with control of the oil, gas and other resources of Northern Africa and the Middle East to benefit the U.S. rich!!


Massachusetts Democratic Senator John Kerry has co-authored, along with Republican Senator John McCain, a resolution introduced in the U.S. Senate supporting the U.S. role in this military attack.. A new CBS poll http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20070187-503544.html reported that 60% of the U.S. population believe that the U.S. “should not be involved” in Libya. Let’s tell Senator Kerry that we stand with the millions here in the U.S. who oppose this war and with the Libyan people who are suffering the tragic consequences.


STOP THE U.S. ATTACKS ON LIBYA!!
BRING THE WAR DOLLARS HOME NOW!!!
