We anticipate that Occupy Boston will endorse and participate in this
important march and rally to stop the wars and bring the war dollars home.
We will start at Park St. at 1 pm, go thru Downtown Crossing, address the
military recruiters, Verizon, and Bank of America as we march by, and wind
up at Dewey Sq. with Occupy Boston as we hold a final rally.  

Please spread the word and join us as we make this urgent connection between
wars, occupations, Wall St., cut backs, and racism.  Oct. 15 has been called
as a global day of action against militarism and austerity.
Americans want the wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere to
end. Instead, the White House has extended and
expanded its war actions, now entering its second decade,
with no end in sight. US forces are still in Iraq,
assassination drones attack Pakistan and Somalia, and
Libya is being bombarded while a new western occupation
is planned. The U.S. backs Israel's brutal occupation of
Palestine, maintains 900 military bases around the world,
and threatens Iran and other countries. Which country will
be the next target of U.S. and U.S.-led wars?

These endless wars have terrible costs - lives lost;
countries devastated; trillions of dollars spent resulting in
service cuts, privatizations, and increased poverty;
scapegoating Muslims and immigrants; and other wars at
home on the Black, Latino, and Native communities.

The tiny minority who run the military-economic-industrial-financial
machine are thriving while the rest of us
increasingly struggle to get by. This has to end!

US Troops, Contractors, and Bases out of Afghanistan and Iraq NOW!
NATO/US Out of Libya and Pakistan!
End US Aid to Israel! Hands-Off Iran!
Money for Jobs and Education, Not for War and Incarceration!
Bring Our War Dollars Home Now!
Stop the Scapegoating of Arabs and Muslims!
