Plans for the March 19 March and Rally in Central Park, NYC are drawing support from antiwar groups across the country.

Saturday, March 19, the second anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, is a world-wide day of protest. In New York City, a broad coalition of antiwar, community,solidarity, and labor organizations will march from Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem to Central Park's East Meadow to demand the immediate, complete, and unconditional withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

Groups from all over the eastern U.S. are organizing buses, vans, car caravans, and peace trains to travel to NYC for what promises to be a massive rally against the war. Activists are travelling from as far away as Maine, Georgia, and Ohio to demand an end to the occupation and money for human needs, not for war.

Troops Out Now

The Troops Out Now Coalition is bringing together diverse progressive and antiwar groups to build a united struggle against the war in Iraq and the war at home. The last meeting of the Coalition drew 65 participants, representing 38 different organizations from all over the Northeast.
