MECAWI & MCHR Co-Sponsor March/Rally to Demand an End to the Five Year Occupation of Iraq
DETROIT --In an effort to demand justice and equality around the world, the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice (MECAWI) will hold a “Demonstration Against the War at Home and Abroad” on the 5th anniversary of the Iraq war on Saturday, March 15, 2007 at noon.
“The United States’ plans for global domination are being met by worldwide resistance,” says MECAWI. “The occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan are a military disaster. Bush and company are threatening a new war with Iran because it refuses to bend its knee to Washington and Wall Street. While at the same time Israel, armed and directed by the United States, rains down death and destruction upon the Palestinians. It is up to us to make change happen.”
Organizers of the march and rally aim to raise awareness of the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the continued occupation of Palestine and the siege of Gaza. MECAWI is also demanding that the U.S. get their hands off of Iran.
Demonstrators are asked to gather at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center at noon and will then march to an indoor rally at the Central United Methodist Church.
