Dear LYNN,
Voters for Peace has joined with numerous anti-war organizations to endorse the March 20th march against the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

People from all over the country are organizing to converge on Washington, D.C. On Saturday, March 20, 2010, there will be a massive National March & Rally in D.C. The day before, on Friday, March 19, will be a day of action and outreach, also in D.C. People are organizing busses and other transportation to the nation's capital to protest the ongoing wars and occupations. To get more information on how you can help and how you can be involved, click here.

There will be coinciding mass marches on March 20 in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

People are joining together to oppose wars and occupations across the globe. We will march together to call for an immediate withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan, to urge "No War Against Iran!" And, we will march together to say "No War for Empire Anywhere!"

Not only are these wars wrong, they are bad for U.S. national security, undermine the economy, and weaken the rule of law and democracy. The United States cannot afford to be borrowing money to fund these wars. It cannot afford $1 million per soldier to be in Afghanistan for one year when 19% of Americans are unemployed or underemployed, when 45,000 die in the U.S. due to lack of health care, and when we are seeing record bankruptcy and foreclosure as well as record debt and deficit.

March 20 is the seventh anniversary of the criminal war of aggression launched by Bush and Cheney against Iraq. One million or more Iraqis have died. Tens of thousands of U.S. troops have lost their lives or been maimed, and continue to suffer a whole host of enduring problems from this terrible war. Just last week the U.S. suffered its 1,000th death of a soldier in Afghanistan just a few days after three busses of civilians were killed in an air strike ordered by the U.S. military.

It is time for us to join together and show our opposition to war and empire.
