Saturday, March 30, 2013

12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Port Jefferson Village, Suffolk County,
Long Island, New York

 


Join us as we peacefully assemble and march:

·         Calling for an immediate and true end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

·         Mourning the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives, both military and civilians.

·         Condemning the killing of innocent civilians by unmanned U.S. drones in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere.

·         Demanding that the more than $2 billion a week spent on illegal wars be diverted instead to fund jobs, education, health care, veterans’ services and other urgent needs at home.

·         Resisting the perpetual war agenda of corporations reaping enormous profits from war-making.

 

Event will take place rain or shine.

Assemble at 12:15 at intersection of Rt. 112 (Main St.) and Rt. 25A (blinking light, across from ferry) in Port Jefferson Village. White “death masks” will be provided to those who wish to wear them. Signs will be supplied, or bring your own.  Please wear black if possible.

 

March concludes at starting point with a solemn reading of the names

of Long Island troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

SPEAKERS: Mac Bica, Veterans for Peace Long Island; Cathy Leahy, One Billion Rising;
