Iraq, Seven Years Later:
Change US Foreign Policy-Bring All the Troops Home!
With the uncertain outcome of the March 7 elections continuing to delay the withdrawal of US combat troops from Iraq, Portlanders are gearing up to protest the ongoing presence of the US military and contractors on the anniversary of the 2003 invasion.
The themes addressed throughout the day will include the expansion of US military presence and US support for military occupations throughout the Middle East:
* End the Occupations of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine
* Stop the Expanding Attacks in the Middle East: No Drone Strikes in Pakistan
* No War on Iran
* US Out of Latin America
The day's events are being coordinated by Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group and cosponsored or endorsed by more than 20 other organizations.
