March 19 International Day of Action

Resist the War Machine

End the wars and occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan!
No war against Libya!

The people of the world are in motion. From Egypt to Bahrain, a wave of struggle is sweeping the Arab world. Here, in the United States, hundreds of thousands of working families are marching for union rights in Wisconsin, Ohio and elsewhere. Students are taking action to stop budget cuts and tuition hikes on campuses throughout the country.

These events show that only the people have the power to make change. They also prove once again that collective action matters. It is time for the anti-war movement to take our message to the streets. March 19, the 8th anniversary of the criminal “Shock and Awe” invasion of Iraq, will be an important step in the struggle. 

On March 19, tens of thousands of people will demand an end to U.S. war and military intervention abroad and funding for people’s needs at home. Mass demonstrations are planned in Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and many other cities across the United States and the world. Click here for a list of protests.

As we build for March 19, the anti-war movement must strongly oppose all U.S. threats targeting Libya. Eight years after the launch of the Iraq war, which has taken one million lives, the U.S. government is threatening another war, this time in Libya. This is a critical issue for the anti-war movement in the United States.
