STOP THE WAR MACHINE: MARCH TO THE PENTAGON March 20, 2006
Remember to Save the Date
March 20, 2006 marks the day, three years ago, when the United States invaded Iraq. More than 2,200 American soldiers have been killed. Thousands more have been wounded and will bear emotional scars for a lifetime. Tens of thousands of Iraqis have perished. And, under the Bush administration, there appears to be no end in sight. We have written letters and asked for meetings with Mr. Bush, we have demonstrated in large numbers, we have met with our representatives in Congress. Now, we confront the war machine—the Pentagon.
The National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance [NCNR], a campaign of the Iraq Pledge of Resistance, is organizing a march and civil resistance at the Pentagon. The NCNR along with United for Peace and Justice organized the September 26, 2005 mass action at the White House. The U.S. Park Police arrested more than 370 antiwar activists who were taking the names of the dead to the White house fence. This was the most arrests in Park Police history.
In the spirit of King and Gandhi we will march to the Pentagon to deliver our message. Please join us.
