BUSH LIES–WHO DIES?
U.S. OUT OF IRAQ! BRING THE TROOPS HOME NOW!
WHO PAYS FOR BUSH’S WAR OF OIL & EMPIRE IN IRAQ?
**G.I.s. Already almost 300 dead, 1,500 wounded — mostly workers and people of color from our communities. $1 billion per week for another Vietnam war, with no end in sight.
**Iraqis. Up to 8,000 dead, 20,000 wounded; a despised U.S. occupation so that union-busting companies like Halliburton, Bechtel and Verizon get multi-billion dollar contracts to plunder Iraq.
**Workers at Home. The very same corporate thieves get huge tax cuts, while slashing our wages, jobs, schools, housing, transit and health care, while trampling on the right to strike, Verizon workers, civil liberties and immigrants.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
Millions of workers around the world — including labor bodies that represent one-third of union members in the U.S. — have opposed Bush’s war for oil and empire.
Iraqis demand an immediate end to U.S. occupation. Our friends and family in the military want to come home now. It’s up to NYC to:
**Educate. Hold a union or community meeting, with speakers from groups like NYCLAW, Vietnam Veterans Against the War, and Military Families Speak Out.
**Take a Stand. Join the 1,500 trade union endorsers of New York City Labor Against the War (see other side). Organize a NYCLAW committee in your union. Propose a resolution to support U.S. Labor Against the War.
**March on October 25. Get your union to send buses to the mass demonstration in DC to Bring the Troops Home Now!
