OCCUPATION IS NOT LIBERATION:
Why We Are Marching on April 12

March Will Target Corporate Profiteers, Fox News and the
Pro-War Media

Having slaughtered and maimed thousands of Iraqi people,
the U.S./British invasion forces are celebrating the use
of their massive, overwhelming and brutal military power
to crush resistance to their invasion of Iraq. The images
portrayed in the U.S. media conceal the reality. While
hospitals are overflowing with civilians and soldiers, the
streets of the country are littered with incinerated
bodies, destroyed homes and families buried alive. (See
"Amid Allied Jubilation, a Child Lies in Agony, Clothes
Soaked in Blood," Robert Fisk, The Independent (UK):
http://news.independent.co.uk/world/middle_east/story.jsp?story=395117
)

The Bush administration is moving rapidly to impose a
colonial-style occupation government on Iraq. This is not
liberation. It is the use of overwhelming firepower to
seize the land and resources of Iraq, and eliminate Iraq's
sovereignty, while violating the most basic principles of
self-determination. This is a war for Empire. The Bush
administration, having carried out a war of conquest in
Afghanistan and now in Iraq, will now step up its plans
for future wars of aggression in the Middle East and
elsewhere.

The people of the United States and the world must stand
together with all of those who resist in the Middle East
to say no to imperialism and to Empire. The occupation of
Iraq will be used to set the stage for intensified war
planning against Syria, Iran, southern Lebanon, North
Korea, the Philippines, and against the Palestinian people
who continue to resist occupation in their homeland. On
Saturday, April 12, people in Washington DC and around the
world will continue the mobilization against the invasion
and the occupation in an international day of action with
demonstrations in major capitals around the world.

The global movement that suddenly emerged in the past six
months in opposition to Bush and the U.S. war drive is a
singularly important development. People all over the
world, in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Latin America, in
the United States and in Europe marched in coordinated
action. These movements have now defied borders and built
an international voice of solidarity. Even the New York
Times on February 17 referred to this movement as the
second "superpower" in the world.

This movement represents the hopefulness of the planet
that war, imperialism, oppression, racism and any form of
colonialism can be overcome through the globalization of
human solidarity.

It would be the most tragic and wasteful outcome if this
movement ミ- less than a year old ミ- decided that its
efforts had failed because Bush and the Pentagon proceeded
with their slaughter in Iraq. The war on Iraq does not
prove the failure of the anti-war movement. If anything,
the war on Iraq proves only that the economic, political
and military authority in the United States is morally
bankrupt. It is nurtured by a system that has become
addicted to militarism and war.

Dick Cheney, speaking on behalf of the administration,
promised after September 11 that there would be "endless
war" and a war lasting a lifetime. These were neither idle
comments nor rhetorical flourish. Since then, the
administration has been absolutely brazen about its
planned military adventures abroad and its systematic war
against Arab Americans, Muslims and civil rights and civil
liberties at home.

While they will never admit it, this planned "endless war"
is a class war waged by the U.S. government on behalf of
corporate and banking elites against all those governments
in the formerly colonized world that have dared to
maintain nominal independence and control over their
natural resources. Bush put it succinctly when he said to
the world "you are either with us or with them." Working
people in the United States have nothing to gain from this
war for Empire. It is for the enrichment and power of the
same corporate and banking circles that have engaged in
mass layoffs, union busting, wage cutting, elimination of
healthcare and other benefits. In fact, Bush's war for
Empire requires a massive transfer of wealth from social
service programs to fund the Pentagon's rapidly expanding
budget.

The Bush administration's plans for world domination are
based on a fantasy entertained by the right wing and
neo-conservative movement and corporate thieves that
military power alone is the ultimate arbiter in world
politics. The New World Order that they aspire to is
similar to the Old World Order of 19th Century
colonialism. The people of the world aspire for freedom,
justice, equality and self-determination. Brute force
alone will not reverse the long historical process whose
necessary outcome is liberation. The essential element in
this struggle is to maintain and build the global movement
-- the force that has always and can win against military
and economic might.

*** CHANGE OF LOCATION ***

The assembly site for the April 12 demonstration will be
at 14th St. and Pennsylvania Ave. NW on the east side of
the White House ("Freedom Plaza/Pershing Park"). This is a
change from the Washington Monument grounds. The monument
grounds are muddy from rain throughout the past week. We
are expecting dry weather on Saturday.

MARCH ROUTE

The April 12 demonstration will include a brief rally and
then a march that will target the offices of the
corporations and mass media that have either profited from
the invasion and occupation of Iraq or served as the
principle purveyors of the lies and misinformation in
service of the war machine.

Our march route takes us to the Carlyle Group, Fox News,
the Justice Department and FBI, the White House, Bechtel,
the Washington Post, the New York Times and the offices of
Halliburton. Marchers will disperse at Farragut Square and
take the metro from the Farragut West stop to RFK Stadium
to get on their buses.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR BUSES COMING TO DC:

*Bus Drop Off*

Bus drop off will be on 14th St. south of Pennsylvania
Ave. South. (between Pennsylvania Ave. and Constitution
Ave. -- drop off on the north part of the block closer to
Pennsylvania Ave). Buses should go to the bus drop off /
rally location, drop off passengers, and then proceed to
parking (see below). After the rally, passengers will take
the metro from Farragut West to RFK Stadium/Armory (the
bus parking location) to get back on the bus (details
below).

*Bus parking at RFK Stadium*

We have arranged bus parking at RFK Stadium. Buses can
park in Lot 8A. The cost of parking for the day will be
$30 and buses must pay when they enter the parking lot.
The bus drivers should indicate that they are with the

*After the rally*

The march will end at the Farragut West metro station.
Volunteers will be on hand to help direct people. Bus
passengers will take the metro to RFK Stadium/Armory on
the blue/orange line. There will also be volunteers on
hand at this end to direct everyone to the appropriate RFK
parking lot. Buses will be parked in Lot 8A. It will cost
$1.10 for each passenger.

If your driver needs to sleep during the day, we recommend
that he/she park at RFK and take the metro to the hotel
