Antiwar Groups to Protest Dem Debate in Hollywood

There Won’t Be A Candidate In That Theater Who Will Really End The War, But That’s What The People Want—And We Intend To Do It WHAT: Anti-War Protest and Picket WHEN: Thursday, January 31, 2008, 5-7 p.m. WHERE: Outside the Kodak Theater, 6801 Hollywood Blvd. (at Highland)

Anti-War Groups To Protest Democratic Presidential Debate

There Won’t Be A Candidate In That Theater Who Will Really End The War,

But That’s What The People Want—And We Intend To Do It

WHAT: Anti-War Protest and Picket

WHEN: Thursday, January 31, 2008, 5-7 p.m.

WHERE: Outside the Kodak Theater, 6801 Hollywood Blvd. (at Highland)

WHY: Real opposition to the war will be excluded from the debate. We

are assembling to bring the true wishes of people in the U.S. to the

streets. The leading Democratic Party candidates are all for continuing

the Iraq war, although they all pay lip service to ending it. Clinton,

Obama, and Edwards all have refused to guarantee they would remove all

U.S. combat troops from Iraq by the end of the next presidential term.

“There won’t be a candidate in that theater who will really end the

war“ said Cela Esquerra, a student, Los Angeles Community College and a

protest organizer. “But that’s what the people want—and we intend to do

it.”

They are talking out of both sides of their mouths. They are for

continuing the occupation, but they want to distance themselves from

the Bush administration and claim that a small, cosmetic change in the

war means real "change."

But neither the Democrats nor the Republicans have any intention of

leaving Iraq. The largest embassy ever built in any country is now

under construction in Baghdad. Fourteen permanent U.S. military bases

are being built in Iraq. Iraq is viewed by U.S. leaders as an

incredibly valuable prize that they have conquered, and a key element

in their strategy of global domination. They will not leave until they

are forced out. No pro-war candidate from either war party should get

a free pass.

WHO: Initiated by the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (Act Now to Stop War and

End Racism), participants include World Can’t Wait, CodePink, Addicted

to War, National Council of Arab Americans, Latino Movement USA,

Gabriella Network, Youth & Students Against War and Racism, Coalition

for Equal Marriage Rights and others
