From the ANSWER listserv, it’ll be on the website soon.
The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition has initiated a call for locally coordinated protests on Saturday, October 28th, just days before the pitiful charade known as the 2006 mid-term elections. The people will force the issue of the Iraq war onto the U.S. political stage by taking to streets in demonstrations in cities and towns throughout the United States.
We reject the call from the so-called opposition in Congress that calls for a strategic redeployment from Iraq and the placement of the divisions now deployed in Iraq into nearby locations and bases so that they can be used against other peoples in the Middle East. That is not a Ã¢â‚¬Å“peace platformÃ¢â‚¬Â but a tweaking of imperialist military strategy.
We are building a global movement that unites rather than excludes all those who are resisting occupation and the threat of US military intervention.
These nationwide protests will be eleven days before the empty charade of the primary elections that offer no choice at all about the war, even though the public clearly opposes it.
More on October 28 coming soon.
