NATION'S CAPITAL - AUGUST 12 - BE THERE.
Are you HUMAN? - Or, aren't you?
If you are, then stand up for HUMANITY!
And while you're at it - let's TAKE BACK AMERICA!
This may be our last chance to salvage what's left of America before the world goes up in flames.
If you are SICK and TIRED of seeing our hard-earned money spent on corporate and Israeli wars and seeing babies blown to pieces with American-made bombs, then take a stand NOW - or forever share the blame!
Descend on DC, August 12th!
A coalition of Arab-American and U.S. peace groups will be holding a press conference on Thursday, July 27, to announce plans for a "MASSIVE NATIONAL EMERGENCY MARCH on Washington DC on Saturday, August 12 to PROTEST the U.S.-Israeli war against the people of Palestine and Lebanon."Speakers include:
"Buses and car caravans are being organized to bring people to Washington DC on August 12 from cities and towns throughout the United States," stated Brian Becker, National Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition. The August 12 National March on Washington D.C. is initiated by ANSWER Coalition, National Council of Arab-Americans, and the Muslim American Society, Freedom Foundation.
The August 12 event will be the largest mobilization to date within the United States to oppose the latest U.S.-Israeli war drive against Lebanon and Gaza, according to the initiating organizations.
The press conference will discuss plans for August 12, the situation regarding rally and march permits, and outline a nationwide campaign to mobilize the U.S. antiwar movement, the Arab-American and Muslim community, and all people of conscience to oppose what the organizers call, "the criminal war that has already killed hundreds of civilians and displaced hundreds of thousands of people from their home.”
The press conference will also include direct eyewitness testimony from Dr. Mounzer Sleiman who has just returned from war-torn Lebanon. Dr. Sleiman is an independent analyst on national security affairs who appears frequently as a commentator on a number of Arab TV networks and radio outlets.
