AN OPEN APPEAL TO THE ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT

BUSH & KERRY MUST BE TOLD
BRING THE TROOPS HOME FROM IRAQ NOW!

RALLY AND MARCH AT THE DNC
Sunday JULY 25, Boston Commons, 12 noon

A HISTORIC CHALLANGE FOR OUR MOVEMENT.

Democratic Party Presidential Candidate John Kerry has made it as clear as day that he supports the continued occupation of Iraq by upwards of 140 thousand U.S. troops and a smaller number of troops from other countries, indefinitely. Kerry has said that he is prepared to send more U.S. troops to Iraq and Afganistan. He supports the criminal apartheid wall that is imprisoning the Palestinian people. He supports Bush's kidnapping of President Jean-Bertrand Aristede of Haiti, and the occupation of that country by U.S. troops. He has vowed to continue Bush's war and do a better job off pulling in "our allies".

Now is not the time to hesitate. Those of us who have been marching against Bush's wars for almost 2 and one half years must not allow misplaced concerns over not doing anything that might hurt Kerry and help Bush keeps us from bringing a strong, and defiant anti-war message to the streets of
Boston during the DNC.

IF we are not out in force at both the DNC AND the RNC we will send a dangerous message that we will surely regret. The message? Kerry has tamed and gagged the anti-war voices, just as he effectively stopped the Kucinich forces from calling for the troops to be brought home now.

We must converge on Boston at the major anti-war rally on Sunday July 25 sponsered by International ANSWER and many others, to scream at the top of our voices that niether of the pro-war candidates have a pass from us to keep the troops in Iraq for 6 more years are 6 more months.

Join us to say:
Bring the troops home now!

The week of protest will kick off with a permitted rally in
Boston Common on Sunday, July 25 at 12 noon, to be followed
by a march on the Fleet Center, site of the DNC.
