Saturday, March 20

Anti-war groups throughout the United States and around the globe will
take to the streets on Saturday March 20, the one-year anniversary of
the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, under the banner "The World Still Says No
to War." Over 150 protests are planned in cities across the United
States, from Alaska to Florida, Hawaii to Maine, calling for an end to
the occupation of Iraq. Similar demonstrations will take place on every
continent in the world, making March 20 a global day of coordinated
action in the spirit of last year's historic February 15 protests.

In New York City, tens of thousands from throughout the Northeast will
converge in Midtown Manhattan for a march and rally in the heart of the
city's busiest shopping district. People will gather on Madison Avenue
stretching north from 23rd Street beginning at noon. For more details,
see www.unitedforpeace.org/nyc

Other major March 20 protests in the U.S. include a march and rally in
Fayetteville, North Carolina, home to Ft. Bragg, which will prominently
feature military families and veterans opposed to the Iraq war and
occupation. Caravans from throughout the state of Texas will converge on
President George W. Bush's hometown of Crawford, for an anti-war parade
and rally.

United for Peace and Justice is a national coalition with nearly 800
groups under its umbrella. Since its founding in October 2002, UFPJ has
spurred hundreds of protests and rallies around the country, including
the two largest demonstrations against the Iraq war. For additional information
