Youth Anti-War Rally-SF Federal Building
Thursday, Feb 22, 4:30
SF Federal Building
Students from 55 schools across the Bay Area have collected thousands of
signatures on a petition to Nancy Pelosi demanding that she and Congress cut
the military funding for the illegal and immoral occupation of Iraq. Join us
at the rally on Thursday February 22 to tell Pelosi to respect the mandate
of the people. (More info below -- All ages welcome). Also, if you'd know
students who might want to sign or distribute the petition, please get back
to us!
