Congresswoman Maxine Waters, The Black Women’s Forum, Dr. Maulana Karenga, The Organization Us, Human Rights Advocacy, SCLC, Stop The Violence/Increase The Peace, various religious institutions, student groups and a growing coalition of other Black organizations and individuals will hold a mass rally to demonstrate opposition to the Bush Administration’s proposed war on Iraq and the Iraqi people.

The event will take place Saturday, March 29 at 11 a.m. in Leimert Park in Los Angeles.
The broad based coalition of Continental and Diasporan African groups has declared that “War is not the Answer.”

Along with Congressmen Charles Rangel and John Conyers, the coalition notes that as African Americans and Latinos make up 60-65% of the U.S. armed forces now deployed in the Middle East, Black and Brown women and men are sure to figure predominately in the number of casualties in addition to the estimated hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians who will be killed.
For more information call (323) 299-6124.
