A.N.S.W.E.R. seems to be the
main organiser of this march:
All Out For The March 20th March
Washington DC, USA
Show Them Why You Are Marching .... and Make Some Noise!
In just days, we will be taking to the
streets! We are hearing from people all over the country who are
coming to bring their message to D.C., and we want to share with
you some of the plans and ways that you can make an important
contribution to the impact of the March 20 National March on
Washington to demand "U.S. Out of Afghanistan and Iraq Now!"
As always, there will be thousands of
printed and handmade signs. We will also be making hundreds of
coffins with flags representing the multinational victims of
U.S. wars of aggression, and many people are bringing coffins
that they are making themselves. You can help make and carry
coffins in the march by arriving at Lafayette Park between 10
a.m. and 12 noon.
Many people are bringing photographs showing Afghan and Iraqi
victims of war. Others who have family members and friends who
have been killed or injured in Afghanistan or Iraq are bringing
photographs to represent their loss. The human cost of war, for
all the numbers, is ultimately immeasurable. We urge people to
join in this representation.
Students facing tuition hikes and cutbacks, workers who have
been laid-off from their jobs, people without health care and
facing foreclosure or eviction, or others feeling the domestic
impact of the war are bringing some visual representation of
their struggles. This may be in the form of a handmade sign, or
it may be another type of creative visual representation.
You can also bring visuals that are specific to the stops on the
march. We will be marching from the White House to the offices
of Halliburton, Washington Post, Mortgage Bankers Association of
America, National Endowment for Democracy and the U.S.
Department of Veterans Affairs.
For example, Cheney puppets would be great to have when we go to
Halliburton. You might want to bring a copy of the Washington
Post to return to their doorstep since it’s functioning as
pro-war propaganda rather than real news. Think about each stop
and be creative!
Be Seen AND Be Heard
We’ll have speakers on the rally and
march, and of course we’ll be chanting. We also want to have as
many drums as possible, so we are encouraging everyone who can
to bring a drum (or a bucket or other implement on which you can
drum). The drums should have straps so you can hold them while
at the rally and on the march.
If you are not able to bring anything,
You can pick up a sign when you arrive.
