Occupation of the National Mall Begins!

*Join the Encampment to Stop the War*

On Monday, March 12 anti-war activists from around the country converged 
on Washington DC to setup and participate in the "Encampment to Stop the 
War". Activists from Wisconsin, Arizona, Missouri, Louisiana, North 
Carolina, Virginia, New York, Boston, Maine, California, and the 
Washington DC area are all participating in the encampment to demand 
that Congress immediately defund the war in Iraq and withdraw all US 
troops Now. The money being used for the war and occupation of Iraq is 
money that belongs to our communities and is needed for AIDS, jobs, 
housing, haelthcare & education. The war in Iraq must stop Now!

On March 17 those participating in the encampment will join with tens of 
thousands for the March on the Pentagon organized by the Answer 
Coalition. The Troops Out Now Coalition is organizing transportation 
from over 20 cities for this important demonstration. *If you haven't 
got your bus ticket yet, please reserve/purchase one today 
at http://www.iacboston.org or call 617.522.6626.*
