"IRAQ 2005: Ending the U.S. Occupation"
~ Part 2
Multi-media Presentation

Bloomington Peace Action Coalition organizers will present the second in a series of programs addressing the need to end the U.S. occupation of Iraq. The two hour long presentation entitled "IRAQ 2005: Ending the U.S. Occupation (Part 2)" will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Monroe County Public Library Auditorium.

The program will be both educational and organizational, encouraging citizens and activists to become engaged in the crucial campaign to support Congressional Resolutions calling for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

The free public program will include a multi-media presentation by speakers and the Bloomington premiere of “How Can We End This War?”

“How Can We End This War?” is the new video presentation of the 'National Teach-In on Iraq', sponsored by The Institute for Policy Studies and United for Peace and Justice, held in Washington, D.C. on March 24, 2005.

The November 10th program will divulge information on the status of the 'Coalition of the Willing'; opinion polls in Iraq and the United States of America; the war on Iraq versus the 'war on terrorism'; the human and financial costs of this war; 'Bring the Troops Home' resolutions, 'End the Occupation' legislation and other 'Out of Iraq' Congressional initiatives; among other aspects of the war and military occupation in Iraq.

The program will also include video footage of speakers and actions from the D.C. Mobilization to End the War on Iraq, that took place in the nation's capital, September 24-26, 2005.
