======== SATURDAY: HANDS OFF SYRIA AND IRAN ==================================

*OCTOBER 6 ACTION AGAINST WARS ABROAD*

*AND POLICE STATE ATTACKS ON CIVIL LIBERTIES AT HOME*

 

*Join us in a march and rally to protest the dangerous escalation in threats  
of military action*

*against Syria and Iran and increased racist violence and repression at  
home.*

* *

*SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1:30 PM*

*PARK ST. STATION, BOSTON*

* *

*Eleven years ago on October 7, the U.S. unleashed a war on Afghanistan,  
followed by the war on Iraq based on lies.  While thousands of troops remain  
in these countries, U.S. drone missiles rain down on Pakistan, Yemen, and  
Somalia.  Now the government imposes sanctions and threatens to attack Syria  
and Iran.  The U.S. sends troops and threatens to retaliate against anti-US  
protesters in the Middle East.  These actions will escalate the nightmare of  
war in the Middle East, not end it.*

* *

*To wage war abroad, they /must/ wage war at home.  The last decade has  
seen escalating repression and poverty at home.  Islamophobia and  
scapegoating of Muslims leads to manufactured frame-ups and violence against  
the Muslim community.  Civil liberties and the right to dissent are under  
siege with indefinite detention and extra-judicial assassinations now the law  
of the land.*

* *

*Racism is a weapon of war. They use it against Muslims and immigrants.   
They’ve stepped up the war on Black and Latino youth, with racial  
profiling, stop and frisk, and harsh sentencing -- resulting in police  
brutality, mass incarceration, military weapons in the hands of police, and a  
hugely profitable prison industry.*

* *

*To pay for wars and to maximize the profits of the haves, they take more and  
more from the have-nots.  We see cuts to the social safety nets, attacks on  
labor, huge unemployment, privatization of public services, neglect of  
infrastructure, and poisoning of the environment.*

 

*LET’S STAND TOGETHER IN UNITY AND SOLIDARITY.  TOGETHER WE ARE POWERFUL!*

* *

*HANDS OFF SYRIA AND IRAN!  NO TO RACISM, RAIDS, AND REPRESSION!  NO TO  
ISLAMOPHOBIA!*
