PHILLY AGAINST WAR
will conduct a demonstration / informational picket
from 4:00pm to 6:00pm on Friday, October 10th, 2008
at 15th & Market Streets, City Hall

Our demands are:


Our alliance consists of (As of September 27th):



Our action occurs one day short of the sixth anniversary of the AUMF, the Authorization for the Use of Military Force against Iraq.

In 2004, spending on the Iraq War was a relatively modest $4.5 billion per month. By 2007, it was around $11 billion per month. With the decline in violence, it's now around $10 billion a month.

With Washington DC all flustered and panicked over an economic crisis at home, that money could go to better uses than to occupy a country whose Prime Minister has declared very explicitly that he'd like to see American troops depart. 

We call for the AUMF to be revoked and for American troops to be withdrawn from Iraq in a prompt and expeditious manner.
