Description

Begin at 26 Federal Plaza, Broadway between Duane and Worth Street in lower Manhattan
March west along Chambers St.
End at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC), 199 Chambers St.

Tuesday, March 19 marks the 16th anniversary of the U.S. "Shock and Awe" invasion of Iraq. Despite a formal withdrawal of troops in 2011, this U.S.-led military operation was renewed in 2014 as Operation Inherent Resolve and continues in Iraq to this day.

We will march past several military recruiting offices along Chambers Street, to BMCC, where students, many of them economically disadvantaged, are regularly targeted by recruiters to join the armed forces.

This action is supported by World Can’t Wait, NYC War Resisters League, Granny Peace Brigade, NYC Metro Raging Grannies, Extinction Rebellion, Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council, Catholic Worker, Peace Action/Manhattan, Vets for Peace/Chapter 34, Green Party of Brooklyn, Brooklyn For Peace, Code Pink NYC, NYC Kairos Community, Pax Christi Metro New York, Peace Action New York State and Peace Action Bay Ridge
