One Month Until 2nd Anniversary of the War

February 19, 2005

We're writing from St. Louis, where hundreds of activists from around the country have gathered at the United for Peace and Justice national assembly to discuss and debate strategies for ending the military occupation of Iraq and creating a better world. It's so energizing to be here with these wonderful activists and be reminded that people who care deeply about our planet and its inhabitants are everywhere!

One month from today, Saturday, March 19, is the two-year anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. We need to speak out on March 19 - to say NO to war, torture, and occupation, and YES to international law, peaceful approaches to solving world problems, and respect for the planet and its inhabitants.

Please join CODEPINK in participating in regional protests or creating local protests such as the ones listed below.

REGIONAL MOBILIZATION IN FAYETTEVILLE, NC
Military families, veterans of the war on Iraq, peace and justice organizations, and thousands of people from around the southeast will march and rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Fayetteville is the home of Ft. Bragg, one of the largest military bases in the country. Sponsors include Veterans For Peace, Iraq Veterans Against the War, North Carolina Peace and Justice Coalition, NC Council of Churches, Fayetteville Quaker House, CODEPINK, and dozens of others. If you live within driving distance of Fayetteville, we hope to see you there. Go to www.NCpeacejustice.org for more information.

PEACE RIBBON AT FAYETTEVILLE
Also in Fayetteville, CODEPINK will display a Peace Ribbon, honoring the victims of the war in Iraq. Our goal is to create a remembrance panel for fallen soldiers and Iraqi civilians who died as a result of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. We need your help. Please make a panel. For instructions, see //www.codepinkalert.org/National_Actions_Peace_Ribbon_Project.shtml

REGIONAL MOBILIZATION IN SAN DIEGO, CA
Camp Pendleton Marine base, one of the largest bases in the country, has suffered a tragic number of causalities lin the ongoing war and occupation of Iraq. CODEPINK will honor the devastating loss of these troops with a peaceful 30 mile, two day procession. Join us on March 18th and 19th as we walk from Oceanside, home of Camp Pendleton, to the massive rally at Balboa Park where we will unite with the San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice to mark the second anniversary of the war in Iraq: The World Says End the War! Bring the Troops Home Now! Rebuild our Communities! For details and information about the peace procession and rally, check out the CODEPINK San Diego page.

NONVIOLENT CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE IN WASHINGTON, DC
The Iraq Pledge of Resistance campaign will kick off on the second anniversary of the invasion with nonviolent civil disobedience actions in Washington, DC and elsewhere. If you are ready to join the ranks of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. as a nonviolent resister, please find out more at www.iraqpledge.org.

LOCAL PROTESTS: BOOKS NOT BOMBS!
We urge you to be out in the streets of your community on March 19, chanting, praying, holding signs, or doing whatever is meaningful to you. We especially encourage you to highlight the impact of the cost of war in your own community. Some communities, especially near military bases, have lost many loved ones in the war. Others are losing funding for vital community programs like public libraries and hospitals while billions are being spent on violence and destruction in Iraq. Get together with military families and veterans, and people who depend on community programs that are being eliminated. Consider holding your protest in front of the health clinic or the library that's being closed down. Check www.unitedforpeace.org to see if a March 19 event is already planned in your community.

See you in action,
Andrea, Ariel, Claire, Dana, Gael, Jodie, Medea, Nancy, Rae, Tiffany
