FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!

 

НАРОДЫ АМЕРИКИ И АНГЛИИ ОБЪЕДИНЯЮТ АНТИВОЕННЫЕ УСИЛИЯ

September 21 International Day Of Peace

21 25 сентября были отмечены небывалыми антивоенными и анти-правительственными выступлениями в Англии и США. Только в протестах в Вашингтоне участвовало более 100 тысяч человек, и они проходили во многих крупных городах страны, поэтому смело можно говорить о миллионах недовольных политикой правительства и ситуацией в стране, вышедших в эти дни на улицу открыто заявить свою гражданскую позицию.

 

Программа выступлений в Америке включала: субботнее шествие мимо Белого дома, грандиозный концерт, молебены, акты гражданского неповиновения, встречи с членами Конгресса, митинги памяти на национальном кладбище в Арлингтоне и многое, многое другое. Все эти мероприятия с небывалым размахом организованы известными правозащитными организациями United for Peace and Justice и International ANSWER.

 

International ANSWER заранее обговорила свое право выступить с лозунгами, которые связывают войну в Ираке с "колониальной оккупацией Палестины, оккупацией Гаити и другими антиимпериалистическими позициями". Связующим звеном протестов стала солдатская мать Синди Шихан, которая на днях призвала к выводу "оккупационных войск" США и из Ирака и Нового Орлеана. Мы размещаем фотографии этих выступлений, которые лучше слов передают настроение людей и обстановку в целом в стране, рассказывают о человеческих судьбах.
