Anti War \ Super Bowl {Iraq Veterans Against War statement}

IVAW Supporters to host alternative Super Bowl parties this Sunday.

Militarism pervades our society in obvious and subtle ways, and to the average citizen, the intrusion of martial values in all aspects of life often goes unquestioned.

The National Football League takes pride in its relationship to the military, but we want to challenge this traditon of linking the violence of war with competitive sports.

With IVAW's alternative Super Bowl parties, help us shine a light on one area of our society where patritic symbolism is used to mask the realities of war. It's not too late to host a party or join one in your area.
