JANUARY 15 1991 - JANUARY 15 2011, 20 YEARS OF U.S. WAR ON IRAQ!
Here's a flyer: PDF
COME TO WASHINGTON, D.C. SATURDAY, JANUARY 15, 2011, TO COMMEMORATE THE U.S. SLAUGHTER OF IRAQ, AND REDEDICATE OUR LIVES TO LIVING OUT DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.’S DREAM OF ABOLISHING WAR AND INJUSTICE!
January 15, 2011 marks the 20th year since the United States began to bomb Iraq. Since then millions of Iraqi people have been militarily occupied, injured, starved, killed, tortured, and imprisoned. Millions more have become internally displaced or refugees in other countries. The purpose of this witness in Washington, D.C. on January 15th is to draw attention to the fact that the United States has been using military force for 20 years that has led to the slaughter of Iraqis and the destruction of their country. It is our hope the United States will instead follow the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to abolish war and injustice.
