Demonstration and Direct Action

To Protest Meeting of House Appropriations Committee Meeting on War Funding


Thursday, March 15
9 AM in front of Rayburn House Office Building
on Independence Avenue

The House Appropriations Committee will be meeting in the Rayburn Building on Thursday, March 15, at 9:00 AM to "mark up" the legislation approving $100 billion more for the Iraq war.

The Troops Out Now Coalition will be demonstrating in front of the Rayburn Building at 9:00 AM to demand that Congress cut off all funding for the war and bring the troops home immediately. Activists with the Coalition and other organizations participating in the Encampment to Stop the War plan to engage in what they call "creative actions of protest" in front of the Rayburn Building.

Sharon Black, a spokesperson for the Troops Out Now Coalition, said, "It is a crime to spend another penny on this criminal colonial war and occupation in Iraq. If Congress votes for more war funds, then they are voting to continue the war."

"Sugar-coating the war funding with calls for 'phased withdrawal' is no more than a ploy to appease antiwar anger," continued Black. "A 12 or 18-month withdrawal plan means thousands more dying and being maimed. Congress must cut off the funds and this nightmare now--or the blood of more Iraqis and GIs will be on their hands."
