The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition in the United States issued a call in early October to mobilize for the March 19 Global Day of Mass Action. This is the second anniversary of Bush's criminal aggression against the people of Iraq. More than 100,000 Iraqis have died, and yet the resistance to occupation by the Iraqi people has not been stifled through the resort to high tech massacres. U.S. soldiers are being killed and maimed in a war for conquest. In these ways Iraq parallels the U.S. war against Vietnam. While the U.S. government is spending billions to kill in Iraq, Palestine and Haiti, it is destroying social programs and working peoples' Social Security. At the same time, the U.S. is threatening new military action in Iran, Cuba, North Korea, the Philippines, Sudan and other countries.

Antiwar actions in Washington DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles and other cities around the country and around the world will take place on March 19.

On the first anniversary of the "Shock and Awe" invasion, March 20, 2004, the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition and others in a larger March 20 National Coalition promoted the building of a united front under the slogan: Bring the Troops Home Now, End Occupation from Iraq to Palestine to Haiti and Everywhere. The demonstration also highlighted the call for Money for Jobs, Education and Healthcare, Not for War and in defense of civil rights and civil liberties. More than 100,000 marched in New York City and 50,000 in San Francisco, refuting the notion that the antiwar movement must turn its back on the just struggle of the Palestinian people in order to build so-called broad support. In fact, the large turnout on March 20 of the Arab-American, Muslim, Haitian and other targeted communities helped the demonstration reflect the broad multi-national and multi-ethnic reality of the global people's movement for justice. This true united front organizing was a major step forward for the antiwar movement in the United States.

We urge all antiwar and people's rights organizations to join together in this important day of action and global solidarity.
