Emergency Protests Against The Growing Threat of War
June 23, 2012
Hands Off Syria and Iran! End the Drone Wars! We Need Jobs, Education and Healthcare--Not Endless War!
The growing threats of war against Syria are alarming. Recently, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned Russia not to get in the way of US backed efforts to force out the government of President Assad. The corporate media is making every effort to make the case for another "Humanitarian War." The drumbeat of aggression against Iran grows daily as well. The threat of new wars is real even as we continue the war and occupation of Afghanistan, and dramatically expand the illegal and immoral use of US military drones.
During the period from June 23 through July 1, Veterans For Peace is asked to join with our partner organizations in the United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC) to organize demonstrations, events, and vigils around the country to protest the growing threat of war against Syria and Iran. Please join the protests in your city or take the lead in organizing one.
Information about all of the actions that are being planned will be posted on the UNAC website: www.UNACpeace.org. If you are planning a protest in your area, please send the information to UNACpeace@gmail.com and it will be included on the website.
