Over 200 cities are organizing buses, vans, car caravans and peace trains to bring people from across the country to the September 24 National Demonstration in Washington, DC initiated by the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition.
Tickets for buses from New York City can still be purchased now online - the final deadline for online tickets is this Friday! Click here for details on how you can purchase tickets for buses from New York City online, by phone or in person.Huge numbers will come from every major city on the East Coast, Midwest and South - New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, Atlanta, Birmingham, Charlotte and elsewhere - and from many smaller cities. Gulfport, Mississippi; Eau Claire, Wisconsin; and Des Moines, Iowa are just a few of the cities organizing for this demonstration. Buses will be coming from as far away as Albuquerque, New Mexico a 28 hour drive to DC.
The National Office of the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition has received an enormous response from people all around the country who are planning to travel to Washington to surround the White House and say, "Stop the War Against Iraq; From Iraq to New Orleans, Fund People’s Needs Not the War Machine!" The new literature reflects both the human solidarity that has been expressed in recent weeks in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, as well as the opposition by different communities to the criminal orientation of the U.S. government toward the victims. The demonstration is building solidarity between the Palestinian people, the Haitian people, the African American community and all working class communities in the United States, and all of those who are the targets of a global system based on racism and exploitation.

At 11:00 am people will assemble for the mass demonstration and People's Speak-Out at the White House (at the Ellipse, on the south side). After an opening rally, we will march. The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition holds permits for both sides of the White House and has secured a permit from the Metropolitan Police Department for the massive march on September 24 that will take the demonstration directly in front of the White House on Pennsylvania Ave. This is the first time in many years that a march permit has been secured allowing people to exercise their First Amendment right for a mass assembly march and protest right at the doorstep of the White House on Pennsylvania Ave.
The antiwar movement is gaining momentum daily. Unfolding developments over the past several weeks have made it clear that the September 24 demonstration in Washington DC has the potential to be the largest outpouring of antiwar sentiment since the invasion of Iraq in March 2003.
The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition urges all those who can to attend the International Tribunal on Haiti, taking place on Friday, September 23 in Washington DC. See below for details about this important event.
Award-winning filmmaker Gloria La Riva of the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition has produced a video based on the visit of an A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition delegation to Louisiana and Texas earlier this month. Please take a moment to view this important video.
The back of the flyer features a new piece entitled "Ten Reasons Why We Are Marching."
