Major Anti War Protests in NYC and SF April 9th

Posted by libhom Wednesday, December 29, 2010

Save the Date!

From the United National Antiwar Committee:

Call to Action

April 9, 2011

New York & San Francisco

from the United National Antiwar Committee

Here's the intent behind this protest:
Bi-coastal mass spring mobilizations in New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles on April 9, 2011. These will be accompanied by distinct and separate non-violent direct actions on the same day. A prime component of these mobilizations will be major efforts to include broad new forces from youth to veterans to trade unionists to civil and human rights groups to the Arab, Muslim and other oppressed communities to environmental organizations, social justice and faith-based groups. Veterans and military families will be key to these mobilizations with special efforts to organize this community to be the lead contingent.

Stay tuned. We need to get back into the streets as part of a larger movement to stop the wars. We can not rely on Barack Obama or any other politician to stop the wars for us.

They also are looking for organizations to endorse the marches.

  2. I'll be there in SF, the ANSWER folks do a good job getting people out.
    I recall a protest against the war two years ago Libhom, in front of SF city hall.Not a huge one by SF standards, 5K to 10K. After listening to speakers the crowd was beginning to assemble for the march. Suddenly we hear the sound of drumming, cymbals, gongs - several hundred people turn onto Fulton st, completely filling it.Asian Coalition Against the War. Lot of these people are immigrants - hell everybody but us skins is an immigrant here, but you know what I mean - newly arrived here.

    Looking for jobs, long hours, family. Lots to concern them. But they spent their Saturday making a stand against an immoral war, while so many American-born's sat home watching TV.

    Seeing them playing music, chanting as they rounded the corner and headed towards the park-I misted up. Tears and pride,man.Tears and pride. Crying out of pride in the human spirit.

  4. I'm glad that people are still speaking up. These wars have gone on for FAR too long.

  6. The MSM will do what they always do-as in, they'll be camped around whatever jail Lindsay Lohan happens to be in that day.

  8. I'm resigned to the wars ending as a result of the pending economic collapse.
