MARCH FOR PEACE, JUSTICE AND DEMOCRACY

Too much is too wrong in this country: a foreign policy that is foreign to our core values, domestic policies wreaking havoc at home, and the environment is being destroyed.

The situation is urgent. We must act.

MARCH FOR PEACE, JUSTICE AND DEMOCRACY
End the war in Iraq - Bring all our troops home now!

SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 2006, NEW YORK CITY
Unite for change - let's turn our country around!

As people concerned about the environment we say:

*End the war and stop nuclear poisoning in Iraq via widespread use of depleted uranium.

*No more never-ending oil wars! Break our oil addiction by getting serious about conservation, efficiency and the urgently needed transition to clean, sustainable energy.

*Support environmental justice for Indigenous, low-income and people of color communities most affected by community-destroying energy policies.

*Protect our civil liberties and immigrant rights. End illegal spying, government corruption and the subversion of our democracy.

*Rebuild our communities, starting with the Gulf Coast. Stop corporate subsidies
and tax cuts for the wealthy while ignoring our basic needs.

*Act now to reverse the climate crisis and end the war on nature.

Our message to the White House and Congress is clear:
Stand with us or stand aside! We are coming together
to march, to vote, to speak out and to turn our country around!
