One week away: Get involved! 

March 19 International Day of Action 

STOP THE WARS, FUND PEOPLE’S NEEDS 

The people of the world are in motion. A revolutionary wave is sweeping the Arab world and hundreds of thousands of working people and students are marching for union rights in Wisconsin and Ohio. Students are taking action to stop budget cuts and tuition hikes on campuses throughout the country. These heroic examples show that the people have the power to make change. They show that protesting in the streets matters.On that day, join veterans, students, union members anti-war activists and thousands of others in Los Angeles to demand money for jobs and education, not war and occupation. March 19 is the 8th anniversary of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Iraq today remains occupied. The war in Afghanistan is raging. The U.S. is invading and bombing Pakistan. The U.S. is financing endless atrocities against the people of Palestine, backing U.S. clients in the Middle East while they brutalize the people, relentlessly threatening Iran and bringing Korea to the brink of a new war.

While the U.S. government will spend $1 trillion for war, occupation and weapons in 2011, 30 million people in the United States remain unemployed or severely underemployed, and cuts in education, housing and healthcare are imposing a huge toll on the people in California and across the country. Saturday, March 19, the anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, will be a national day of action against the war machine.

  • End Occupation: Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine & Everywhere!
  • Fund Jobs, Healthcare & Education, Not Militarism!
  • Stop Budget Cuts, Tuition Hikes & Attacks on Working Families!
  • From Egypt to Wisconsin to Los Angeles: The People Have the Power!
