March 19-20: The World Says End the War

Global Day of Protest
March 19th, 2005

March 19-20 marks the two-year anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq.  The war on Iraq is one manifestation of a larger US agenda for domination in the Middle East.  The illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine, which is supported politically and financially by the United States, is included in this agenda.
The US Campaign is joining United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) to call for end to the war.  On March 19th and 20th people around the world will be joining together in a global protest against the war and against occupation.  A major national convergence will take place in Fayetteville, North Carolina which is home to Fort Bragg, one of four major US military bases in North Carolina.  Additionally, there will be decentralized protests in cities in towns all over the country.
