Priscilla Lounds, former Army specialist and anti-war organizer with March Forward!, will lead this Saturday's organizing meeting to talk about the exciting organizing that is happening amongst veterans and active-duty service members.
Click here to read testimonials from leading veterans in the anti-war movement such as Margaret Stevens of March Forward! and Mike Ferner, President of Veterans for Peace, on why they are marching on March 20th:
Tens of thousands of people from all over the country are organizing to converge on Washington, D.C., to demand the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of all U.S. and NATO forces from Afghanistan and Iraq. We will march
together to say "Free Palestine!" and "No War on Iran!"
We won't sit by while the bankers and militarists plunder this country and send our loved ones to fight in a war for empire. Instead of war, we will demand funds so that every person can have a job, free and universal health care, decent schools and affordable housing.
We will also demand an end to the foreign occupation of Haiti
and reparations for the vast wealth that has been looted from the
country by foreign imperialist countries like the U.S. and France.
Help spread the word about March 20th and get on the bus from Boston!
Following Saturday's meeting, join with other activists and volunteers in hitting the streets of Boston for visibility and community outreach.
