> Join us in Washington, DC March 18-20th to protest the ongoing wars and call for the release of Bradley Manning.
> This March 19th Voters for Peace is endorsing a protest led by four veterans groups, Veterans for Peace, Iraq Vets Against the War, March Forward! And Vietnam Veterans Against War, that will include mass civil resistance at the White House.  Join us and participate. We are seeking to have more than the 131 vets and their allies who were arrested in December building the resistance needed to end the wars risk arrest. I will be one of them, join me.  For more on this event visit Stop These Wars.

> On March 20th, there will be a march and protest in Quantico, Virginia at the Marine Base where Bradley Manning is being held in solitary confinement.  Manning has not been found guilty of any crime yet his pre-trial detention has morphed into pre-trial punishment, as he has been held for 9 months in solitary.
> 
> On March 18th there will be a pre-event  at Bush Boys and Poets (5th and K Streets, NW) that will feature music and inspiration.  Daniel Ellsberg leads a cast of great speakers.
> 
> These wars are killing people every day, destroying families, forcing people from their homes and undermining U.S. national security and the economy.  President Obama is once again putting forward a larger weapons and war budget, this one the largest since World War II, despite the faltering economy. 
> 
> Please join us in Washington, DC-area for these important events.
