SAT. 9/424: Thousands to Protest War in Iraq in Downtown LA

Thousands to Attend Los Angeles March and Rally on Sept 24th to Protest the War in Iraq and Support for Hurricane Victims Calls for 'From Iraq to New Orleans Fund People's Needs, Not the War Machine' As Part of a National Day of Protests Against the War

Thousands to Attend Los Angeles March and Rally
on Sept 24th to Protest the War in Iraq and Support for Hurricane Victims

Calls for 'From Iraq to New Orleans Fund People's Needs, Not the War Machine'
As Part of a National Day of Protest Against the War

WHAT: March and Rally Against War in Iraq
WHEN: Saturday, September 24, at Noon
WHERE: March: 12 Noon at Olympic & Broadway, Downtown LA
Rally: 1:30 PM at the Federal Building, Los Angeles & Temple

WHO: Actors Martin Sheen and Diane Lane, Vietnam Vet and Author Ron Kovic, (Born on the Fourth of July); the L.A. County Federation of Labor; Military Families Against the War; Paul Haggis, Writer & Director; California State Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero; Maria Elena Durazo, President, UNITE/HERE Local 11 are among the invited speakers.

At 12 Noon on Saturday, September 24, a broad coalition of community, labor, and peace organizations, brought together by the ANSWER coalition, will mount a massive march and rally in Los Angeles, in coordination with national demonstrations in Washington, DC and San Francisco.

These demonstrations promise to be the largest anti-war protests since before the U.S. invasion of Iraq in March 2003. More than 10,000 people have endorsed the September 24 anti-war demonstrations nationwide.

Thousands of protestors will assemble at Olympic and Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, followed by a march to the Federal Building for a major rally.

Demands of the demonstration include: End the War on Iraq; Bring the Troops Home Now; Real Relief for the Victims of Hurricane Katrina; Money for Jobs, Health Care and Education, Not for War!

Anger against the war grows. Bushs ratings plummet.

''The war in Iraq is an unmitigated disaster for the Bush administration, said John Beacham, national for the national Los Angeles march. ''Nearly 1,900 U.S. soldiers and over 100,000 Iraqis have died as a result of the war. At home, Bushs approval ratings are lower than ever before. The anti-war sentiment in the country is broadening. This has only increased in the wake of the recent Hurricane Katrina tragedy.''

''The crisis of Katrina goes far beyond a 'natural disaster.' The massive death and destruction are the result of criminal government inaction and focus on militarism and war instead of human needs at home. The Bush administration has spared no resource in waging its war against Iraq, taking more than $200 billion from the people of the United States to do so.''

According to Monday's CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll many of these
sentiments are shared by a majority of Americans. 54 % polled said
they would cut spending for the war in Iraq to pay for
hurricane relief, and 59 % said launching the war was a
mistake. That figure is the highest recorded in a CNN/USA
Today/Gallup poll. Only 39% said the invasion of Iraq was
the right thing to have done.

Get Out Reach Out

by Friend in Portland Saturday, Sep. 24, 2005 at 6:44 PM

Make your own leaflets, flyers and signs! Subvert the left narcissism inherent in normal protests with unofficial information and human humor! "If I can't dance, leave me out of your revolution."

Official Lies, Press Complies!
911 was an inside job!
Change Gov't Not Leaders!
Gov't is Broken!

Life is Poetry, Live!
Portland will be out in solidarity!
