World Can’t Wait, along with 40 other organizations, has organized Spring Rising: An Antiwar Intervention in protest of the 12th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. Four days of anti-war events in Washington, DC, including teach-ins, protests, and a concert, as well as other actions from San Francisco to New York City will protest the 2003 “shock & awe” U.S. invasion of Iraq. Click for the full schedule of events in DC and elsewhere for events around the U.S.

Important questions for the antiwar movement are being engaged at a teach-in March 19 & 20, including:

Stopping Targeted Killing by the U.S. Around the World & Stopping Killing with Impunity by U.S. Police; Connections & Challenges
Speakers: Marsha Coleman-Abedayo, Hands-Up Coalition; Carl Dix, Revolutionary Communist Party & Stop Mass Incarceration Network; Kymone Freeman, WE ACT Radio; Eugene Puryear, ANSWER Coalition; Debra Sweet, World Can’t Wait

U.S. Wars of Aggression and Islamic Jihad: What is the Danger, and How Should the Antiwar Movement Respond?

A rally and march will begin at the White House at noon on Saturday, March 21, passing through Chinatown, where many of the protests against police murder have concentrated, and ending at the Capitol.

Cindy Sheehan, whose oldest son Casey was killed in Iraq on April 4, 2004, said, “Spring Rising is intended as an antiwar intervention into the world capital of war-making. The U.S. has spread its military across the globe and is engaged in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and, via drone strikes, in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. The U.S. government is provoking Russia in Ukraine and Eastern Europe, pushing for another coup in Venezuela and expanding its military presence in Asia and Africa.”

World Can’t Wait said, “Nothing good can come from U.S. bombing and domination of the region.” Click here for more on the events at the World Can’t Wait site.
