When the 2,000th Soldier Dies in Iraq

A majority of Americans oppose the war and want its planners held accountable. We’ve won the public debate, despite the media’s best efforts. We may be able to frame our messages to increase our majority further, but doing so is not needed and could move us away from the strength and passion we so badly need. What we require is increased activism and sacrifice.

More than one in four US soldiers return from Iraq in need of medical or mental health treatment. Their stories are gut wrenching and tragic.

But they have been spared the fate of 1,982 of their brothers and sisters, who have died in Iraq for Bush’s lies.

The day is coming soon when the 2,000th US soldier will have died in Iraq. After Downing Street supports United for Peace and Justice, American Friends Service Committee, Gold Star Families for Peace, Military Families Speak Out, CODEPINK, and Global Exchange in calling for actions on that day.

If there’s no event near you, we encourage you to organize one.

Not one more US service member or Iraqi should have to give their life before our government finally admits that the war against Iraq was wrong and it’s time to bring our troops home.

Cindy Plans to Set Example
Cindy Sheehan has commited to getting arrested again at the White House to mark the announcement of the 2,000th US soldier’s death in Iraq.

“Hundreds of thousands of people were in DC on September 24 and the leaders still are not leading us,” Cindy told the Village Voice. “They’re still spouting the Republican talking points even if they’re Democrats. So what are we going to do? It’s going to have to be massive non-violent civil disobedience I believe.”

The World Can’t Wait!
Drive Out the Bush Regime!

On November 2, the first anniversary of Bush’s “re-election”, World Can’t Wait will organize a truly massive day of resistance all over this country. People everywhere will walk out of school, they will take off work, they will come to the downtowns and town squares and set out from there, going through the streets and calling on many more to JOIN US.

They will repudiate this criminal regime, making a powerful statement:
