Subject:   SPAM-MED: [september17discuss] Wall Street is War Street: Antiwar rally on Sat, Oct 15 moved to OWS
 

It was originally going to be targeted at 3 embassies in Midtown, but the United National Antiwar Committee (UNAC) voted to move it downtown.

Wall Street Is War Street

On the 10th Anniversary of U.S. War in Afghanistan

NO to Endless WARS!

Sat. OCT. 15,

Noon Rally at Wall Street

March to Occupy Wall Street Encampment

Liberty & Broadway

 

Oct. 15 is a day of nationally coordinated antiwar actions in cities across the U.S., the 10th anniversary of the massively destructive and criminal U.S. war on Afghanistan.

 

When the U.S. government began its attack on Afghanistan 10 years ago, President Bush called it a “war on terror.” It was followed by 8 years of U.S. war Iraq and now war in Libya and drone wars on Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and Sudan under Pres. Obama. These are all wars for oil, resources and markets in the interests of corporate power.

At the same time, the U.S. government is carrying out attacks on working people within the U.S., cutting back on health care and education while bailing out the Wall St. banks and insurance companies. Every time people call for money for social services, we are told there is no money, but the government always finds money for its wars. It is increasing repression on Muslims, on Black and Latino youth and on those who protest, as the FBI raids on anti-war demonstrators and the NYPD attacks on the peaceful Occupy Wall St. demonstrators show.

Join us in a march to demand an end to U.S. wars in Afghanistan & Iraq, an end to U.S. aid to Israel, and an end to U.S. bombing and destruction in Libya and an end to the growing repression at home.

We NEED

Jobs, Health Care & Education

NOT

War, Racism & Repression
