US Troops Out Now!
March in NYC on Saturday, March 19
M19leaflet_boston_Page_1.jpg
The weekend of March 19-20 is the second anniversary of the beginning of the U.S. "shock and awe" attack on Iraq. Antiwar and progressive organizations worldwide have called for protests on this weekend.

In the U.S., the Troops Out Now coalition, a broad coalition of antiwar, community, solidarity, and labor organizations, has called for a massive regional march on Central Park on March 19 to demand the immediate, complete, and unconditional withdrawal of all US troops from Iraq.

A few months ago, Mayor Bloomberg, the NYPD, and Bush told us that we could not march to and rally in Central Park. We do not accept this decision and are determined to challenge it by assembling tens of thousands of people to retake Central Park --our Park. The antiwar movement cannot afford, and must never again agree to, this infringement on our rights, especially in a city as important as NYC.

— will march on Central Park in New York to demand an immediate end to the U.S. war in Iraq. O U T N O W !
Help to build a broad national mobilization to resist Bush’s new war budget of $80 to $100 billion. We need money for schools, health care and human needs— not endless war!

In addition, there will be local and regional demonstrations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Washington DC, and throughout the country. There will also be a major regional demonstration in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Fayetteville is home to Fort Bragg, which is the home base for the 82nd Airborne Division and many of the Army's elite units. For more information on this rally, see: http://www.mfso.org.

How You can get involved:

1) Attend organizers meetings 6:30pm every Tuesday at 284 Amory St. (The Brewery), Jamaica Plain

I think people in Boston should build for the Boston march. It will give an oppurtunity to people who have families and jobs in Boston to take to the streets.

I know there is a flyer out so I'll try to get that posted for people ASAP.

as one who has children and a job I will gladly get on a bus to go to NYC on Saturday, March 19 to protest against the war machine. It is especially important given the fact that NYC is the world's financial center.

I think it is a mistake to counterpose a protest here in Boston against that in NYC which has been planned for many months. For those who can't go, there should be an activity here but it shouldn't be done in an attempt to stop people from going to NYC. It should be done in conjunction with the NYC protest
