Anti-War March & Rally (Pick Your Protest) | Civic Center
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
On March 20, 2010 – the 7th anniversary of the beginning of the War in Iraq – there will be a massive march and rally in San Francisco at Civic Center Plaza (as well as in Washington D.C. and in Los Angeles) to demand the withdrawal of all U.S. and NATO forces from Afghanistan and Iraq. Expect a march, lots of signs, speeches and calls to action.
But with one protest comes many others that the organizers hope you support as well, including an anti-Israel, pro-Palestine rally, a general call for increased funding for public health care, jobs and education as well as a call to pay reparations to Haiti and a protest of all colonial activities of the U.S. in Latin America.

From the Event Organizers:
“This is the time for united action. The slogans on banners may differ, but all those who carry them should be marching shoulder to shoulder.
Killing and dying to avoid the perception of defeat
Bush is gone, but the war and occupation in Iraq go on. The Pentagon is demanding a widening of the war in Afghanistan. They project an endless war with shifting battlefields. And a “single-payer” war budget that only grows larger and larger each year. We must act.
Both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars were predicated on the imperial fantasy that the U.S. could create stable, proxy colonial-type governments in both countries. They were to serve as an extension of “American” power in these strategic and resource-rich regions.”
