New Orleans is hosting an anti war demonstration on October 27, in conjunction with the UFPJ national day of action.
Here in south Louisiana, we say, SAVE NEW ORLEANS by ending the Occupation of Iraq!
We say, that the Occupation of Iraq spreads hatred of our country to every corner of the world, and it spreads intolerance in the form of racism, from Jena to Fallujah, and back.
Do you want to help New Orleans, the city that the U.S. government has abandoned? Do you want to help save our nation? Then join us in New Orleans on October 27th, and be heard in the streets, as we tell the government that from genocide to Jena, the madness must stop NOW. Join us, as we demand and end to the Occupation NOW! Demand that we must end racism NOW! Our money must be spent here. We can not export "democracy" if we don't even practice it here at home.
New Orleans was one of the most colorful and cultural cities in our country, and today it lies in ruins, more than two long years after Katrina. Join us then, on Halloween weekend, so that we can stop this madness in the Middle East, rebuild New Orleans, and get this nation back on track.
Yes, it's Halloween, so be creative...and we will show you that in spite of two years of pure trauma, that we in New Orleans still know what southern hospitality, and what the real USA, is all about. You will not be disappointed that you chose to come here, and simply by coming you will be helping our city come back.
Hope to see you there. Washington Square, 2pm until 6pm. We will march through the French Quarter.
