March 17th will be the fourth anniversary of the War in Iraq, and for those of you who are sick and tired of the devastation and destruction that this war has caused and is continuing to cause, we encourage you to consider participating in a massive anti-war march in Washington, D.C. demanding that the U.S. get out of Iraq NOW.
Since March 17th is during our spring break, SEWI will not be organizing transportation, but there are many ways to get to D.C. if you’re interested. For a list of buses to the march, click here.
Additionally, there will be numerous demonstrations nation-wide on this date, so if you can’t make it to D.C. but want to protest, find a demonstration near you and join in on the peace effort.
