for the March 17 mass anti-war protest in Los Angeles is
building every day. On March 17, many tens of thousands of
people will assemble at 12 noon on the corner of Hollywood and
Vine and then march through Hollywood. March 17 is the 4th
anniversary of the illegal Iraq war. We’ll demand "U.S. Out of
Iraq Now!" at this critical time.
The rally will feature live performances from the
Grammy-winning band Ozomatli and the legendary Jackson Browne, a
member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. There will also be
celebrities, community leaders and activists and much more.
organizing centers in Southern California, Arizona, Nevada and
New Mexico are mobilizing transportation to the LA protest.
People are bringing buses, vans, carpools and "peace trains."
Many thousands more will come on their own in cars and on public
transportation. Students are also taking a leadership role in
mobilizing for the LA protest. Students from 60 schools are
actively building March 17.
March 17 in LA will be
coordinated with a national march on the Pentagon in Washington,
D.C., and other regional actions. The ANSWER Coalition initiated
March 17 nationally; more than 2,000 groups and individuals have
endorsed, including Cindy Sheehan, Vietnam veteran Ron Kovic,
Academy Award-winning director Paul Haggis, Congresswoman Maxine
Waters, United Teachers Los Angeles, Office of the Americas,
Veterans for Peace, African Americans Against the War and many
others. A large, broad coalition of progressive organizations is
building the LA protest.
The LA March 17 protest will be the largest outpouring of
anti-war sentiment in the city in recent years. Be a part of
this historic action. People are sick and tired of the war and
Bush administration’s lies. As U.S. troops and innocent Iraqi’s
die in a colonial war, people at home lack healthcare, jobs and
necessary social services. Not one more person should have to
die in this illegal, unjust war.
