As the U.S. government quietly builds-up a new war in Iraq, extends the war in Afghanistan and stokes civil war in Syria and beyond, the Obama Administration has escalated attacks on Venezuela and hypocritically imposed sanctions about the country being a "threat" to security. 

This is a critical moment as the Obama administration seeks Congressional Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) in the Middle East and perhaps beyond.

On March 21, the anniversary of the criminal U.S. invasion of Iraq:

RALLY at the CNN Building in Hollywood (6430 Sunset Blvd | Corner of Sunset & Cahuenga | Just blocks from Hollywood & Vine Red Line)
SPEAK OUT at Hollywood & Highland
MARCH to the Armed Forces Recruitment Center 
to say:

• End War, Occupation and Intervention in the Middle East and Central Asia – U.S. Out! 
• Free Palestine – End U.S. Aid to Israel! 
 Hands off Venezuela! No to U.S. sanctions & intervention vs. Iran, Venezuela, Korea, Cuba, Mexico, Russia, Haiti, Philippines & everywhere 
• Fund People’s Needs, Not Endless War! 
• Stop Pres. Obama’s new 3-year AUMF – Authorization for Use of Military Force! 

On Saturday, March 21 the ANSWER Coalition is taking a lead role, as part of a broader coalition, in organizing a National March in Washington, D.C., to oppose the policy of “endless war" in Iraq, Libya, Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East. The March 21 National March will gather at the White House at 12:00 Noon and will be the culmination of four days of actions in the Capitol. The events are being organized under the banner of 'Spring Rising.'

There will be a protest in Los Angeles in solidarity with this important national mobilization.
