Mock Funeral Procession Remembers Military In Iraq

Military Families Speak Out, Long Beach Area Peace Network, Iraq Vets Against the War, Veterans for Peace and Vietnam Veterans Against the War protest occupation in Seal Beach and Long Beach, California in symbolic funeral procession.

Mock Funeral Process...

Six years after our troops went into Iraq, the occupation continues, and Americans and Iraqis are still dying in a war based on lies. We have been fighting to stop this war since before it started, and we will continue that fight until all our troops are home from Iraq. Your Voices and the voices of military families were instrumental in turning the public against this occupation, and brought us to the point where President Obama had to promise to end the war in order to be elected President. We are deeply angry and profoundly hurt that his plans stop far short of ending the occupation of Iraq now. But, if we changed the way a nation viewed this war in the darkest days of the Bush administration, we can rally the nation now to press Congress and the President to bring all our troops home NOT IN 19 MONTHS! NOT IN THREE YEARS! BRING OUR TROOPS HOME NOW!

Home boy came home stiff
Not like his new widow’s upper lip
“Fallen Hero” said the local rag,
not “another one in a body bag”
Proud flag wavers' hearts don’t skip,
knowing they’ll never take that trip
