Coinciding with the 20th anniversary weekend of the U.S.-invasion of Iraq, antiwar organizations and coalitions are initiating a major set of actions including a major demonstration at the White House in Washington, D.C. on Saturday March 18 demanding “Peace in Ukraine – Say NO to Endless U.S. Wars” and “Fund People’s Needs, Not the War Machine.”

This action is being organized by a coalition of groups that are dedicated to resisting US imperialism and racism and that oppose the wars being waged at home and abroad. We are building an antiwar movement rooted in working class and poor communities.

The Biden administration seems determined to escalate the Ukraine war. The danger of a catastrophic global war – including nuclear war – is real. A U.S. General commanding 50,000 troops in the Pacific also issued a letter to his sub-commanders in recent days informing them that he believes that the United States will be at war with China within two years. The danger of global war is growing! The people must act!

The demonstrations will make connections between the human and financial toll of U.S. militarism at home and abroad. Key demands include:

  • End the $100 Billion in arms shipments to Ukraine
  • End NATO
  • Stop the permanent war economy that funnels trillions of dollars away from jobs, education and health care
  • Negotiations now! The people of the U.S. are not interested in the possibility of nuclear war nor the Pentagon’s policy of “weakening Russia.”
  • No to war with China!

Endorse the march here.
