Tuesday, September 25 - Take to the streets when criminal Bush comes to the UN!

All Out Mobilization for powerful protest actions on September 25 when Bush speaks at the UN!

When Bush speaks at the United Nations Tuesday, to tell the world the United States is a permanent presence in the Middle East and to drum up support for attacking Iran, there must be a powerful and defiant resistance out in the streets that makes clear our intent to stop the whole disastrous course Bush is taking the world.

Converge at the UN beginning at 8:30 am for a whole morning of protests.

Make sure to WEAR ORANGE to the protests, and cover NYC in orange that day to show a sea of visible opposition to Bush and everything he represents.
