TROOPS OUT NOW

Permits Secured for March 19!

The Troops Out Now Coalition has won an important victory by securing permitted rallies in Marcus Garvey Park and Central Park's East Meadow and an ending rally on 5th Avenue and 79th St.on March 19!

Based on a campaign of mass pressure and persistent assertion of our rights, we have won a significant victory, and we will hold a demonstration on 5th Ave, despite the NYPD's attempt to prevent the protest from taking place.

This demonstrates the power and effectiveness of mass protest and determination to struggle.

This power was demonstrated recently as the antiwar movement has forced the government of Italy to announce that it is withdrawing troops from Iraq. Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, a right wing millionaire and close ally of the Bush Administration, faced a renewed antiwar movement, when thousands took to the streets in response to the U.S. murder of Nicola Calipari, the Italian intelligence agent. This incident sparked outrage in Italy, where public opposition to the war has always been strong.

Hundreds of thousands lined the streets during Calipari's funeral. Demonstrations tooks place all over Italy, demanding the immediate withdrawal of Italy’s 3,000 troops from Iraq. Berlusconi was forced to bend to the will of the people, and announced that Italian troops will be withdrawn from Iraq in September.

Italy is just the latest country to withdraw from the "coaltiion of the willing". Spain, Poland, Hungary, Holland, Portugal, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua, and the Philippines have all either withdrawn their troops or are in the process of doing so, as the antiwar movement in these countries have taken to the streets to oppose the ongoing occupation.

Here in the U.S., we face a greater challenge, with more than 150,000 U.S. troops deployed in Iraq. But as the people of Italy and throughout the world have shown, the power of the antiwar movement in the streets can stop the war, and this is why hundreds of thousands of people will be in the streets once again on March 19.

Update on March 19-20 Events World Wide

The global antiwar movement has called for the weekend of March 19 & 20 to be international days of protest against the war and occupation.

The NYC demo is one of the largest expected demonstrations in the U.S. with tens of thousands expected and the FIRST major anti-war demonstration coming out of Harlem.

In Los Angeles, the 'Troops Out Now' Caravan will proceed through the community of South Central Los Angeles with signs and banners demanding that King/Drew Trauma Center, a major health care center scheduled to be shut down because of budget cuts, be kept open and given the funds needed to serve the community.
