Mark the eighth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq by protesting the ongoing war outside the John Haney Federal Building, 100 S. Clinton St., at 11:45 a.m. Friday March 18, the day before the ninth year of the U.S. occupation of Iraq begins.
Hosted by Syracuse Peace Council and A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, community members are invited to join the downtown Syracuse protest, in conjunction with several other similar events planned across the country.
Protestors will be demanding the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops and contractors from Iraq and the redirection of billions of dollars spent on the war to fund the needs of citizens in the United States.
The protest will also highlight the growing threats of U.S. and NATO intervention in Libya.
