“IRAQ 2005: Ending the U.S. Occupation!”
On June 28, 2005, President George W. Bush addressed the military and the nation from Fort Bragg, North Carolina: “Some contend that we should set a deadline for withdrawing U.S. forces … Setting an artificial timetable would send the wrong message to the Iraqis, who need to know that America will not leave before the job is done ... Our mission in Iraq is clear.”
What is ‘The Mission' in Iraq?
Are U.S. troops in Iraq protecting Iraqis or Americans?
Can 'the terrorists' be defeated in Iraq?
Is the world a safer place because of U.S. forces in Iraq?
Is the tide turning, in Congress and among the general public, against the continuing U.S. military presence in Iraq?
What about the 'coalition of the willing'?
What can you do?
Learn how you can make a difference in bringing an end to the U.S. military occupation of Iraq, and help bring U.S. troops home.
This program will be both informational and organizational, drawing activists, organizers, and the average citizen into the crucial campaign to engender support for Congressional Resolutions calling for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.
The program will include a multi-media presentation with speakers and the Bloomington premiere of the new film --
“Falluja: April 2004”
This revealing documentary by Japanese documentary filmmaker Toshikuni Doi, released in May 2005, investigates the human toll of the U.S. military's bombardment, invasion, and seige of Falluja, Iraq in April 2004.
Organizers from around the state are highly encouraged to attend and participate!
