* The U.S. occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan continue to fail thanks to the resilence of the people there and massive opposition here at home. These wars are producing a deepening economic crisis affecting working people in this country, with billions of dollars being spent on wars abroad rather than on peoples’ needs at home–the unemployment rate had its highest spike in 23 years, fuel and food prices have shot through the roof, and home forecloures and evictions are increasing.

Despite this, the U.S. appears to be poised to attack yet another country  in the Middle East, this time taking aim at Iran. The Bush administration continues to levy public threats against the people of Iran and Congress is currently debating a bi-partisan resolution that calls for a total land, air, and sea blockade on Iran, similar to the resolution passed before the invasion of Iraq . The possibility of war on Iran seems more likely each day, and we must take action to stop the U.S. from waging another imperialist war on the backs of working people here at home.

On August 2nd, people around the country will be organizing demonstrations in a coordinated day of action to demand no war on Iran. Over 40 cities are participating in this day of action and more are signing on to the call each day. Join us in the Triangle on August 2 at 2:00pm at the State Capitol building in Raleigh for a march and rally to say “NO!” to the U.S.’s plans for war on Iran and to demand an end to the bloody occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. Only the people can stop the war!

WHAT: RALLY TO DEMAND NO WAR ON IRAN! U.S. OUT OF IRAQ & AFGHANISTAN NOW!

WHEN: AUGUST 2 at 2:00pm


WHERE: GATHER AT THE STATE CAPITOL BUILDING, RALEIGH
