CHICAGO- March and Rally -
Saturday, March 14, 2009 12 noon SHARP
Marshall Boulevard & Cermak Road
(2 blocks from the "California" stop on the Pink Line "el")

While we face the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, our government is handing cash to bankers at home and pouring our tax dollars -- a trillion-plus and counting -- into foreign wars that murder, maim and violate people's right to decide their own future.

The reality is that there is no "good" war – in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan or Iran. Our arms to Israel make their war OUR war, as well.

Decades of U.S. policies have imposed unequal trade agreements on immigrants' home countries that destroy local economies -- forcing people to move here to seek the living wages they can no longer earn at home. The new administration has continued Bush regime policy toward immigrant workers, and is using the economic meltdown as a tool to recruit more immigrant, minority, and poor youth to fight rich men's wars for oil and power.

Please join us for a united Chicagoland march to oppose continuing U.S. wars abroad and war on immigrants at home.

Whether you call it the world financial structure, the U.S. culture of waste, or the ability of the common man to make a decent living, the system is broken. It's time for the common man to go on strike. Join or support the March on Washingon (more...)
