A march on the Pentagon is planned for Saturday 21 March to oppose more war in the Middle East.
On the sixth anniversary of the disastrous invasion of Iraq, Americans are awake to the futility and costs of war as a response to trouble in the region. Fewer than half of Americans who give President Obama favorable ratings approve of his plan to send 17,000 troops to Afghanistan. 82% of Afghanis oppose it.
A bus will make a round-trip from Ithaca to DC for the protest, leaving Ithaca at 4 a.m. and returning at 10 p.m. The cost is $60, subject to sliding scale.
More information about the trip is available at the web site www.tompkinsagainstwar.org.
