Remembering Fallujah

Wednesday, November 17, 2010 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

The U.S. occupation has had horrible effects on the Iraqi population, but Fallujah has suffered more than any other Iraqi city. Fallujah is to the Occupation of Iraq, what My Lai was to the Vietnam War, and what Hiroshima and Nagasaki were to World War II. Fallujah is the skeleton in our closet that we cannot hide from.

Join with people people who were there to remember, to learn about the ongoing impact of the occupation and to commit to actions to both repair some of the devestation and to prevent such attrocities from occuring again.

End War

Demonstation to end US wars and occupations.

Even as combat troops are pulled out of Iraq, 50,000 troops remain along with a surge in private contractors (75,000 and counting), along with numerous military bases.  It is time to end the occupation.  And time to end the occupation of Afghanistan.  Time to end the drone attacks in Pakestan, Yemen and Somalia.  Time to end the funding of Israel's occupation of Palestine.  Bring all the troops home and stop funding wars and occupations.  Demonstration and street theater.
