LET'S RUIN BUSH'S VACATION!
Protest August 25th in Kennebunkport
On August 25th Bush hopes to vacation in Kennebunkport, Maine, while innocent
Iraqis and US soldiers continue to die during the bloodiest summer since the
invasion of Iraq began.
While Bush is on vacation, US soldiers yearn to return home and see their
families, many on their 3rd and 4th tour in Iraq.
While Bush is on vacation, Iraqis are afraid to leave their homes due to the
increased violence and fear created by the US occupation.
Bush recently claimed "progress" in Iraq and that his decision to escalate the
war in January was justified. This is coming from a president who also believes
the health care system in this country is the best in the world because "every
American can go to an emergency room." The majority of Americans are convinced
that the war was a mistake and that politicians should take action to stop
funding and begin withdrawing troops.
Now is time to act.
The Campus Antiwar Network in NYC is calling on students, vets and everyone
against the war to help ensure that Bush receives no vacation while his
administration continues to illegally occupy Iraq. Thousands will descend upon
Kennebunkport, taking over the city, to send Bush and the media our message.
Speakers include Cindy Sheehan, Dennis Kucinich, Agustin Aguayo and leading
student antiwar activists.
