I received the following announcement via the listserv of Military
Families Speak Out.  I checked the ANSWER website, but it is not on
its home page, so I assume that this is mainly organized by the NY
chapter of ANSWER.

Subject: [MilitaryFamiliesSpeakOut] Bring the Troops Home Now! Rally

Dear Friends,

On Tuesday, August 19, military families, veterans, and activists
will rally at the House of the Lord Church for a "Bring the Troops
Home Now" Rally. You are invited to help launch this nation-wide
campaign which will build towards a march on Washington D.C. on
October 25.  This rally, which is co-sponsored by the Martin Luther
King Peace Now Committee and the International A.N.S.W.E.R.
Coalition, will feature presentations by families of military
personnel and veterans, as well as anti-war activists.

As the conflict in Iraq continues as casualties mount on both sides,
it becomes clear that what the Bush Administration presented as a
quick war of liberation is turning into a long and bloody occupation.
Only a mass movement of the people can stop the occupation.

Let's all come out and demand that our sons, daughters, brothers, and
sisters come home now.  Military families who would like to be
involved can call 212-633-6646.

We invite you to attend at The House Of The Lord Church 415 Atlantic
Ave. (downtown Brooklyn between Nevins and Bond St.; 2,3,4,5 trains
to Nevins St. or A,C trains to Hoyt-Schemerhorn). For more
information call  212-633-6646.   *****

I don't think that this ANSWER rally will be big, but it sure beats
doing nothing against the occupation until fall.
