March on the Pentagon March 17!

web button white

The March 17 March on the Pentagon is shaping up as a major step forward in the struggle to stop ongoing imperialist wars in Iraq and elsewhere. The ANSWER Coalition reports today that after a major free speech battle with various government entities for permits, the route is now fully permitted, and, in addition, a major collection of pro-impeachment groups have now signed on as endorsers, including such groups as After Downing Street, CODE PINK Women for Peace, Democrats.com, Democracy Rising, Gold Star Families for Peace, the Green Party of the United States, the National Lawyers Guild, Progressive Democrats of America, and World Can't Wait-Drive Out the Bush Regime. There are more than 200 cities organizing transportation. And there's an impressive list of speakers, which you can see at the link above.

I can't be there - I'll be at the march in San Francisco on the 18th (there are also regional marches in Los Angeles on the 17th and Seattle on the 18th). But, if you can be in Washington on March 17th, wild horses shouldn't keep you away. It's going to be historic.

Here is a short video to provide some additional motivation:

And finally an article which discusses the significance of the Pentagon as the site for the rally.
