Unite With Others Marching for Peace & Justice

Saturday, October 27th, tens of thousands are expected to participate in a coordinated day of opposition to the Bush Administration war in Iraq.

New York, NY, October 9, 2007 — United for Peace and Justice, the largest anti-war coalition in the U.S., today announced plans for 11 massive anti-war rallies to take place around the nation on Saturday, October 27th 2007. As polls indicate that 70% of the U.S. population disapproves of the widely unpopular war, organizer’s believe the October 27th action will provide a platform for those who have remained silent thus far to express their message of disapproval to the Bush Administration and demand decisive action. Participating organizations include veterans and military family groups as well as hundreds of national and local peace groups.

Leslie Cagan, National Coordinator of United for Peace and Justice said, “Never before have we seen anything like this. In regional centers throughout the nation people will gather in an expression of the wide spread opposition to the war. This war, with its senseless death and destruction in Iraq, is draining our communities as resources we need here at home are squandered every day. It is time to bring our troops home.”

Tens of thousands are expected to participate in the coordinated day of opposition to the Bush Administration war in Iraq. The protest will take place in 11 regional centers including New York, Boston, New Orleans, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Jonesborough (TN), Seattle, Salt Lake City, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Orlando. Several other cities are conducting smaller gatherings for those who are unable to travel.
