We are Neighbors for Peace and Justice, a grassroots organization comprised of residents of Mt. Washington, Eagle Rock, Glassell Park, and Highland Park neighborhoods of Los Angeles. We are strongly opposed to war in Iraq!
We believe that a pre-emptive war in Iraq will result in the following:
- An increase in the risk of terrorism, both domestically and internationally.
- Media distraction from Bush Administration scandals.
- Seizure of Iraq's rich oilfields. (Guess who gets Saddam's oil?)
- Needless deaths of innocent Iraqi citizens and Americans.
- A disproportionate percentage of People of Color risking their lives while serving in U.S. Armed Forces.
When we protest: Every Saturday, from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Where we protest: In Glassell Park, at Eagle Rock Blvd. and El Paso Ave. (near Albertson's supermarket)
Please protest with us! Please ask bring a sign large enough for car passengers to read (we will have several available if you cannot get a sign together in time).
