CANADIAN PROTEST MARCH 17TH Protestors are demanding the arrest of the war criminal GWB as he is schedule to speak in Calgery. As he leaves US soil VoteStrikers will attempt to place GWB under arrest.

US PROTEST THURSDAY March 19 leave work & school to PROTEST the 6th anniversary of the Iraq War.

US PROTEST SATURDAY March 21 march on the Pentagon.

keep the government spying on citizens and continue Bush’s “state secrets” justification;

increase the U.S. military by 92,000 troops, sending more to die for empire;

refuse to investigate & prosecute the war and torture crimes of the Bush regime.

It’s time now to take action & make our demands visible everywhere. Find actions or organize one at


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...)
