September 15: A showdown in Washington DCUSLAW, Veterans for Peace back Sept. 15 March

September 15 in Washington, DC is becoming the biggest showdown between the major contending forces in the Iraq War.

The future of the Iraq war is at a tipping point.

A warmongering president is politically isolated and is planning to use the September 15 Petraeus report from the Pentagon to justify the continuation of the war in Iraq. On the other side, millions of people are angrily demanding an immediate end to the war.

September 15, 2007 will be remembered as a moment of decision. The future of Iraq and the fate of US soldiers and marines hangs in the balance.

There is really just one issue: will the people of the United States take to the streets and prove that they have the capacity to stop a government carrying out criminal activity in their names.

The support for the September 15 March on Washington is immense.

New September 15 endorsers include the national Veterans For Peace (VFP), USLAW (U.S. Labor Against the War), Iraq Veterans Against the War Chair Garett Reppenhagen, Tina Richards and Grassroots America, Campus Anti-War Network (CAN), Pam Africa, Hip Hop Caucus, Democracy Rising and hundreds of others from veterans groups, and student, labor organizations, civil rights and environmental organizations. They join with Howard Zinn, Ramsey Clark, the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation, Cindy Sheehan, Mounzer Sleiman of the National Council of Arab Americans, Cynthia McKinney, Father Roy Bourgeois and Eric LeCompte of the School of Americas Watch, Jonathan Hutto and Liam Madden of Appeal for Redress, Malik Rahim, Code Pink,, National Lawyers Guild, Latino Movement USA, and hundreds of others.

We need everyone who has stood against this war to begin making plans now, organizing their friends, families and co-workers to be part of this mass assembly on September 15. Click here for flyers, transportation sign up. Many people will remain in Washington on September 16-20 to Turn Up the Heat as the politicians and Congress “debate” war funding following the issuance of the Petraeus report. The war must end now, and we must do all we can to make that happen.
