“WALKIN’ TO NEW ORLEANS”
Veterans’ and Survivors’ March for Peace and Justice
Begins Tuesday, March 14, 2006 at Mobile, Alabama.
Ends Sunday, March 19, 2006 with a rally in New Orleans, Louisiana.
For Peace in Iraq and Justice on the Gulf Coast
March 19, 2006 is the third anniversary of a war of aggression based on lies. It is now estimated that the invasion and
occupation of Iraq may cost $2.65 trillion, in addition to the over 2,400 American troops killed and over 100,000 Iraqis
killed. The US government has erected bases that are like cities in mere months to continue this illegal war, but has dragged
its feet and excluded the residents of the Gulf Coast from decision making on reconstruction after Hurricane Katrina.
If we can build cities in the desert for war, we can rebuild cities in the US for justice.
VETERANS FOR PEACE, IRAQ VETERANS AGAINST THE WAR, MILITARY FAMILIES SPEAK OUT, AND GOLD
STAR FAMILIES FOR PEACE, along with Gulf Coast communities and post-Katrina popular organizations, will conduct
the 5-day trek along Highway 90, drawing on the connection between criminal aggression in the Persian Gulf and criminal
neglect of the Gulf Coast.
Military veterans, military families, and hurricane survivors are invited to walk part or all of this
pilgrimage. The general public is invited to attend the rally in New Orleans on March 19th.
