End the Occupation of Iraq! Bring the Troops Home Now!
Fund Human Needs- Not War!
Military Recruiters Out of Our Schools!

Two and a half years after the invasion of Iraq the brutal nightmare
continues with no end in sight. According to the Lancet report, over
100,000 Iraqis have died and many more have been wounded. The death
toll of U.S. forces is over 1800 with 15,000 wounded.

At the same time a catastrophe of massive proportions is unfolding in
the Gulf of Mexico with no end in sight. Thousands are believed to have
died and many more are now homeless. Natural disasters can’t be stopped.
But what happens before, during, and after them is not inevitable. It
wasn’t foreordained that thousands would die in Katrina’s path or that
thousands more must die in Iraq.

We must unite! The policy of waging war for control of oil resources and
the policy decisions leading to the social catastrophe unfolding in the
Gulf Coast point to a consistent assault on and disregard for the lives,
safety, and needs of working families.

Plans are being made to organize a massive March and Rally on Boston
Common on October 29th, 2005 to End the Occupation of Iraq! On July 31st
a broad coalition of antiwar, youth, and community organizations was
formed, the October 29th Coalition. We encourage all antiwar
organizations, youth, other groups in the community, and all those in the
region who want to organize to stop this criminal war of conquest to join
with us at our next planning meeting.

Join us in planning this action and in organizing a broad outreach campaign.
The challenge before us is to unite, plan, and then mobilize our opposition
into a strong mass movement that can turn millions more against the war and
fight for a social policy that serves human needs- not conquest, occupation,
and domination.

According to Donald Rumsfeld the war could last as long as 12 more
years.

How many more will die in a war that was a lie from start to finish?

How many more billions of our tax dollars will be drained into a war for
oil?

How many more billions will be looted from vital social needs such as
hurricane relief, reconstruction, jobs, education, and healthcare or
libraries,
firehouses, childcare, eldercare, or Social Security?
