October 11 Announcement & Leaflet

6 years after Congress passed the Iraq War resolution:

Stop funding the Iraq war and occupation:
Bring the Troops Home NOW!

Out of Iraq • Out of Afghanistan
No war on Iran
Funds for Housing and Human Needs – Not War

Saturday, October 11, 2008 • 1:00 pm
Hiawatha & Lake Street • Minneapolis
Be part of a visible anti-war presence with signs & banners.

Six years ago, on October 11, 2002, the U.S. Congress overwhelmingly
passed a Joint Resolution authorizing the Bush
Administration to launch the Iraq war. Since then, Congress has
continued to provide billions of dollars for the war and occupation.

On Saturday, October 11, 2008 – six years after Congress gave
the green light for war – demonstrations, vigils and other events
will be held in cities around the country calling for an end to the war
and occupation of Iraq. These events, held as the election campaign
gears up, will keep the anti-war message in the streets.

In this election year, some politicians talk about “winning the war”
and staying in Iraq for 100 years while other politicians are talking
about “withdrawal timetables,” or moving troops out of Iraq only to
send them to Afghanistan instead.

The people of Iraq want the occupation troops out of their country.
The war and occupation must end now! Join the Minneapolis
October 11th protest to keep the anti-war message visible and
in the streets!
