The U.S. embargo of Iraq has killed more than a million people in the last ten years – half of whom are children – from bombing, disease, malnutrition, lack of medicine, polluted water and environmental damage. A stepped-up war will further decimate an already devastated civilian population, and cost the American people hundreds of billions of dollars that could be used to fund healthcare, housing, jobs and environmental protection. We’ve already been at war with the people of Iraq for a decade. It’s time for it to end.

Oppose the Bush war on Iraq.

Let Your Voice Be Heard!

When: Noon • Saturday • Oct. 26

Where: Federal Plaza, Jackson & Dearborn, Chicago
