The Peace and Freedom Party has endorsed the March 19 demonstrations.
No to War & Colonial Occupation – Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine & Everywhere!
Fund Jobs, Healthcare & Education, Not Militarism!
Stop Attacks on Working People – Solidarity with Local 2 Hotel Workers!
March 19 is the 8th anniversary of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Today, Iraq remains occupied by 50,000 U.S. soldiers and tens of thousands of foreign mercenaries. Protests will take place that day in Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and many other cities.
The war in Afghanistan is raging. The U.S. is invading and bombing Pakistan. The U.S. is financing endless atrocities against the people of Palestine, relentlessly threatening Iran, stepping up hostility against Venezuela, Cuba and other progressive governments in Latin America, and bringing Korea to the brink of a new war.
While the United States will spend $1 trillion for war, occupation and weapons in 2011, 30 million people in the U.S. remain unemployed or severely underemployed, and cuts in education, housing and healthcare are imposing a huge toll on the people. Now, new rounds of cutbacks in vital public services and jobs are underway at every level.
Among those under attack are the 12,000 SF hotel workers, members of UNITE-HERE Local 2, who have been fighting for a new contract that protects their healthcare, wages and working conditions. The SF action will include a march to boycotted hotels in solidarity with the Lo. 2 workers.
The first organizing meeting for the SF March 19 march and rally will be on Sunday, Jan. 16 at 2pm at the Local 2 Hall (209 Golden Gate Ave.). All are invited to attend, bring your ideas and energy, and help build for this important National Day of Action.
