with the 20th anniversary weekend of the criminal U.S.-invasion of Iraq
a major set of actions including a demonstration at the White House in
Washington, D.C. on Saturday March 18 demanding "Peace in Ukraine – Say
NO to Endless U.S. Wars” and “Fund People's Needs, Not the War
Machine.” Since 2003, the U.S. has engaged in sanctions (economic war)
on more than 40 countries. These targets of U.S. economic warfare
include the people of Cuba, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Ethiopia, Eritrea,
Iran and many other nations. Even in the wake of the worst disasters,
like the recent deadly earthquake, Washington keeps its cruel sanctions
in place against Syria. U.S. bases and “commands” blanket most of the
world. It is a global empire.
Biden administration is determined to escalate the Ukraine war. The
real goal of the massive arming and training of Ukrainian forces has
nothing to do with the interests of Ukrainian, Russian or American
people. The aim instead is to “weaken Russia” as stated by the U.S.
Secretary of Defense himself, even at the risk of a catastrophic
nuclear war that could end life on Earth. A U.S. General commanding
50,000 troops in the Pacific also issued a letter to his sub-commanders
in recent days informing them that he believes that the United States
will be at war with China within two years. The danger of global war is
growing! The people must act!
demonstration will make connections between the human and financial
toll of U.S. militarism at home and abroad. Key demands include:
- Peace in Ukraine - No weapons, no money for the Ukraine War
- Abolish NATO – End U.S. militarism & sanctions!
- Fund people’s needs, not the war machine!
- No war with China!
- End U.S. aid to racist apartheid Israel!
- Fight racism & bigotry at home, not other peoples!
- U.S. hands off Haiti!
- End AFRICOM!
