MAS Freedom, ANSWER, and others mobilize for Massive March on Washington

WASHINGTON, DC (MASNET) Feb. 12, 2010 – On Saturday, March 20th, 2010, tens of thousands of people from all over the United States, and throughout the world, will converge on Washington, DC to demand an end to the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to call for a transfer of the massive Pentagon war budget to fund the social needs of millions of poor and working people in America.

This mobilization, coordinated by the national A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) will bring together both secular and religious people of conscience to raise our voices in a clear demand for peace and justice.  MAS Freedom has endorsed this protest, and we are calling on Muslims throughout the metropolitan Washington, DC area and throughout the nation, to help spread the word throughout the Muslim community and come out to join this critical nonviolent action.  Information on the mobilization can be found at: www.march20.org

We will march together to say “No Colonial-type Wars and Occupations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Haiti!” We will march together to say “No War Against Iran!” We will march together to say “No War for Empire Anywhere!”

Instead of war, we will demand funds so that every person can have a job, free and universal health care, decent schools, and affordable housing.

Imam Mahdi Bray, one of the key leaders of the march, declared that “Muslims must recognize that ending the U.S. military actions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other Muslim-majority nations is necessary for the well-being of Muslims here in America, as well as our communities in areas of war and conflict.  The promise of real change must be a promise of peace, jobs, and economic security for millions of suffering people in our nation and our world.”
