Big Anti-War Protest Tuesday, March 20th!

On the 4th Anniversary of the War

Stop Funding War and Occupation!

TROOPS HOME NOW!

MARCH and RALLY

TUESDAY, MARCH 20, 2007

6:00 PM - Assembly - 24 W. Walton Street

7:30 PM - March - Down Michigan Ave. to Daley Plaza

If you're critical of this war but have never taken part in an antiwar action, now it's even more important than ever to participate. Hundreds of thousands have died, including over 3,000 U.S. soldiers and as many as 650,000 Iraqis - with those numbers growing daily.

Americans have paid roughly half a trillion dollars for the war - including over $20 billion from Illinois residents - all funds that could instead have funded acess to quality health care, housing and education. And leaders from both parties have vowed to keep the dollars flowing. Meanwhile, the U.S. government continues to bankroll the brutal occupation of Palestine, support Israeli aggression in Lebanon, continues its 5 year invasion of Afghanistan and threaten future attacks against Iran.

On March 20th, take a stand. Tell the government we want money for human needs, not war and corporate greed

ABOUT THE M-20 COALITION.

On January 6th, over 100 individuals and representatives of organizations, including the Gay Liberation Network, gathered to begin organizing the Chicago area's response to the 4th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. The group voted to host a march on Michigan Avenue on the evening of Tuesday, March 20th, followed by a rally at Daley Plaza. As the scene of the largest mass false arrest in Chicago history and an on-going free speech battle with the city, organizing for the right to march on Michigan Avenue was seen as a symbol of the ongoing battle to defend civil liberties in Chicago, and in the nation at large.
