"No You Can't!" Protesters To Tell Obama at December 12 Rally

PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

"No You Can't!" Protesters To Tell Obama at December 12 Rally

Peace Movement Groups Unite Against Obama War Escalation - Warning of Reprisals to Troop Surge

WASHINGTON DC, December 1, 2009 - More than 100 leading peace activists have announced an "Emergency Anti-Escalation Rally" at the White House on December 12, from 11:00am to 4:00pm, to reject President Obama's announced military escalation in Afghanistan. The rally is organized by End US Wars, a newly formed coalition of national and grass-roots antiwar organizations, with endorsements from leading peace activists.

Rally organizers are calling for the left to end its support for Obama now that he has committed to a troop surge, and to condemn and oppose Obama's war policy. In addition, the process will begin to replace Obama with an anti-war candidate, and to remove any pro-war legislators. Protests will intensify against U.S. war involvement in Afghanistan, Iraq and any other countries.

Speakers include: Cynthia McKinney, Sen. Mike Gravel, Kathy Kelly, Chris Hedges, David Swanson, Rev. Graylan Hagler, Coy McKinney, Debra Sweet, Brian Becker, Mathis Chiroux, Lynne Williams, Hon. Betty Hall, Elaine Brower, Marian Douglas, Michael Knox, Ralph Lopez, Ron Fisher. Statements will also be read from Col. Ann Wright, Stephen Zunes and Granny D (turning 100). Jordan Page and Emma's Revolution will be among the musical performers.

End US Wars' "Open Letter to Obama," posted on the website, demands that Obama keep his promise and end the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars; call a cessation of Predator drone attacks over Pakistan; and begin immediate reconstruction and recovery in war-torn regions.

Prior to the rally on Saturday, December 12 at 11 a.m. in Lafayette Park, the film "Rethink Afghanistan" will be shown Friday December 11, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., at Busboys & Poets, 14th and V Streets, NW, Washington, DC. The video can be viewed online free in six parts here:
