March for an end to the occupation of Iraq!

Act Now to Stop War & End Racism (A.N.S.W.E.R.) and United
for Peace and Justice (UFPJ), are joining forces to call
on all those who oppose the war, invasion and occupation
of Iraq, to unite on Saturday, October 25 in Washington,
D.C., for a truly massive outpouring reflecting the
growing popular opposition to the Bush Administration's
foreign and domestic program. It was the peace and antiwar
movement in the 1960's and 70's that proved to be one of
the decisive factors ending the US war in Vietnam. The
October 25th demonstration will be a powerful repudiation
by the people of the United States of Bush's criminal war
and occupation of Iraq and will be a signal of the new
antiwar movement's potent political force countering the
Bush Administration.

UFPJ and A.N.S.W.E.R. have both organized antiwar
demonstrations numbering in the hundreds of thousands in
the last year and have now agreed to join forces for the
purpose of organizing the October 25 National March on
Washington, D.C. under the banner: End the Occupation of
Iraq, Bring the Troops Home Now! The protest will also
condemn the vast cuts in vital domestic social and
economic programs and demand: Money for jobs, education &
healthcare, not war and occupation. As the October 25-26
weekend is also the second anniversary of the passage of
the so-called Patriot Act, authorizing political arrests,
indefinite detentions, domestic spying, and religious and
racial profiling, the demonstration will also be a call to
Fight Back Against the Patriot Act.

By working together we are optimistic that this
mobilization will be an expression of the wide-spread
opposition to the ongoing occupation of Iraq. We urge you
to do everything possible to help bring massive numbers of
people to Washington, D.C. on October 25th!

Statement Issued by A.N.S.W.E.R. and UFPJ, 9/5/03.
