PROTEST AGAINST THE WAR at the August 7th debate of the Democratic Presidential candidates in Chicago.

Demand NO MORE FUNDING for the war.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 7TH

IN FRONT OF SOLDIER FIELD*

(*exact location to be announced)

The protest will begin at 4 PM, when the doors open, but if you can't get there until after 5 PM, please attend anyway (their debate begins at 6 PM).

Americans are overwhelmingly against the Iraq war.

The rest of the world, even more so.

But more than 4 years into the war, politicians of both parties have done little more than talk about ending it. Crucially, they have continued to vote funding for the war while critical needs at home -- healthcare, housing, education, transportation -- go unmet. In Bush-like form, all leading Democratic candidates refuse to take a pre-emptive attack on Iran off of the table.

Please participate as we demand of ALL of the candidates:

STOP FUNDING THE WAR.

BRING THE TROOPS HOME NOW!

Protest convened by the Chicago Coalition Against War & Racism and Chicagoland CodePINK.

Co-sponsored by ANSWER Chicago, AWARE, Bloomington Normal Citizens for Peace and Justice, Chicago North PDA, Chicago Socialist Party, Gay Liberation Network, Hammerhard MediaWorks, International Solidarity Movement - Chicago, International Action Center - Chicago / Troops Out Organizing Center, Military Families Speak Out - Chicago, Near West Citizens for Peace and Justice, Neighbors for Peace, North Shore Coalition for Peace and Justice, Palestine Solidarity Group, Peace Coalition of Southern Illinois, Peace Majority Report, Progressive Democrats of Illinois
