    19 marzo:il giorno della protesta globale contro la guerra

    20 marzo 2005 - Action Center (actioncenter@action-mail.org)


    March 19, 2005- Today, tens of thousands of people
    converged on New York City to oppose an illegal war of
    aggression against the people of Iraq. People drove from
    as far away as Florida and Minnesota to demand an
    immediate end to the occupation.

    The day began with a rally in Harlem's Marcus Garvey Park.
    Speakers included Brenda Stokely, President of DC 1707,
    Nellie Bailey of the Harlem Tenant's Council, and Carl
    Webb, a member of the Army National Guard who has refused
    to deploy to Iraq.

    After the opening rally, more than 15,000 marched to join
    thousands already gathered in Central Park. As they
    marched through Harlem, they were greeted by cheers and
    applause from the community. People came out of stores and
    apartments to join the march. Others hung out of their
    windows and flashed the peace sign or raised their fists.

    Speakers at the Central Park Rally included Representative
    Charles Rangel, New York City Council Members Margarita
    Lopez and Charles Barron, former U.S. Attorney General
    Ramsey Clark, and attorney Lynne Stewart.

    After the Central Park Rally, thousands marched to the
    Upper East Side mansion of billionaire Mayor Michael
    Bloomberg with the slogan, "Fund Cities, Not War!"

    The turnout for this demonstration confirms that the
    antiwar movement has entered into a new phase of
    organizing against the war. It confirms that the greatest
    attention must be paid to reaching out to communities most
    impacted by the war and by the policies of the Bush
    Administration. These communities are the targets of the
    budget cuts. They are also targeted by military
    recruiters, who exploit economic hardship with false
    promises of opportunity. As a result, the children of
    these communities are dying disproportionately in Iraq,
    paying the ultimate price for a policy of greed and
    empire.

    Organizers with the Troops Out Now Coalition plan to
    continue to protest the war and occupation. On May 1, the
    Troops Out Now Coalition will join the Million Worker
    March on the streets of New York City in a rally and march
    to demand, "Jobs, Not War! Bring the Troops Home Now!"

    In addition to the Troops Out Now Demonstration in New
    York City, there were
    demonstrations in more than 700 cities throughout the
    U.S., including major regional demonstrations in
    Fayetteville, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago.

    This weekend saw protests all over the globe. There were
    demonstrations in Argentina, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico,
    Australia, Vietnam, South Korea, Pakistan, Iceland,
    Ireland, Germany, Cyprus, and many other countries.

    Tens of thousands of people marched through central London
    on Saturday, calling on Prime Minister Tony Blair to get
    British troops out of Iraq.
    Protesters marched from Hyde Park Corner past the US
    embassy to a rally in central London's Trafalgar Square.

    The protesters placed a black cardboard coffin with the
    slogan "100,000 dead" scrawled across the daffodil-strewn
    lid against a tree outside the US embassy. As the coffin
    was laid down, the crowd chanted: "George Bush ... Uncle
    Sam. Iraq will be your Vietnam."

    In Sweden, protesters filled up Sergel square in downtown
    Stockholm, chanting: "USA, out of Iraq!"

    In Istanbul, an estimated 15,000 people marched, some
    carrying signs reading "Murderer Bush, get out."

    In Poland, which has 1,700 troops in Iraq, more than 1,000
    marched to the US Embassy in Warsaw, holding banners
    reading "Pull out from Iraq now" and "Poles back to
    Poland."

    In Athens, about 3,000 trade unionists, members of peace
    groups, and students brought the city center to a
    standstill for about three hours as they marched to the US
    Embassy.
