Thousands of Peace-Loving people marched through the streets of Hollywood today demanding an immediate end to the US military occupation of Iraq. The war in Iraq began three years ago when Mr. Bush, in a blatant act of aggression, ordered the US military to invade the sovereign nation of Iraq.

As justification, Mr. Bush cited knowledge of Iraq's possession Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). No WMD were ever found in Iraq. Three years later, the US military continues to occupy the nation of Iraq, despite polls which indicate that a majority of Iraqis and US citizens want the US troops to be withdrawn. ...

On August 6th 1945 the United States government deliberately used nuclear weapons against innocent civilians. It is thought that close to 70,000 people perished instantly in the nuclear explosion over the city of Hiroshima, with that number approaching 200,000 in the following days and weeks from radiation poisoning. Three days later another bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki resulting in an estimated 120,000 deaths. All totaled the United States government had killed close to 320,000 people in the space of three days.

This coming weekend, people around the world are coming together to remember the atrocity of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and to call attention to the dangerous hypocrisy of the current US policy on nuclear weapons.

Here are some links for information about some local events: Seal Beach Anti-Nuke Rally: A National Day of Action! 8/6/05 | Bearing Witness: 60th Anniversary of Hiroshima Bombing | Physicians for Social Responsibility- Los Angeles | 60th Anniversary of the Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki / Symbolic Bombs, Authentic Deaths

The WallPeople Protest the Apartheid Wall Being Built to Enclose Palestinians
Around 300 people in Santa Monica participated on November 9th at the International Day Against the Israeli Apartheid Wall to protest the construction of a 400 mile long wall that would enclose the Palestinian areas of the West Bank behind a 25 foot tall wall. The demonstration educated people about the largely unknown wall. Reports from the event are: a photo essay by a, and a photo set from Marcus.

After decades when people witnessed the end of South African apartheid, the fall of the Berlin Wall, Israel has embarked on a project to build a wall around Palestinian areas, in a kind of reverse-gated-community. It's eerily reminiscent of Jewish ghettos enclosed by walls, like Terezin and Warsaw. Within these ghettos, Jews lived oppressed lives apart from the rest of society, under a curfew, and with limited political clout.

A short history of the 'ghetto' as a tool of segregation and oppression.

IMC Palestine has complete details on the construction of the wall.
