Foreclose the War, Not our Homes and Futures!

Picket and March against the War and Foreclosures
On the 5th anniversary of the criminal war in Iraq


Wednesday, March 19, 2008
4:30 (picket) – 5:30 (march)
Bank of America Tower
at 1 Bryant Park
(Sixth Ave between 42nd and 43rd St), NYC

In this time of economic crisis, thousands of homes are being foreclosed, workers are being laid off in record numbers, and our education system and social programs are severely underfunded. Meanwhile, the raging wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are costing human lives on both sides as well as U.S. tax dollars. The population of the U.S. has proven that we are against these imperialist wars; and yet our tax dollars are going to these occupations, as opposed to our needs.

To symbolize the connection between the economic crisis and the war, we will picket the $1 billion Bank of America Tower in Midtown Manhattan and march to a candlelight vigil hosted by Nodutol to recognize the 5th anniversary of the Iraq invasion (Korea Town Plaza at 32nd Street and Broadway). Bank of America is a war profiteer and is responsible for a large number of the home foreclosures in the U.S.

The youth group F.I.S.T. (Fight Imperialism-Stand Together) is demanding an end to U.S. imperialist plunder in the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Balkans and the Caribbean. We demand funding for education, housing, jobs, and health care; not war and occupation.

  1. I have visited this site on many an occasion now but this post is the 1st one that I have ever commented on.

    Congratulations on such a fine article and site I have found it very helpful and informative – I only wish that there were more out there like this one.

    I never leave empty handed, sometimes I may even be a little disappointed that I may not agree with a post or reply that has been made. But hey! that is life and if every one agreed on the same thing what a boring old world we would live in.

    Keep up the good work and cheers.

  2. I believe if you want to make a larger statement to Bank of America you should protest a building where actual executives and traders will be present. You can choose from 1133 and 6th ave, 9 West and 57th (between 5th and 6th, main hq), or 1633 and broadway.

    These locations are 3 of 7 main sites. The tower project is only going to be blue collar workers and unions that you will be protesting. I feel your message will be misinterpreted by them. Most of which who have served and are trying to bleed this project of money for their families. They work 80 plus hours a week and will probably take the protest as more insult than anyone who is actually important in the bank.
