Out of Iraq Rally March 17 and,
Candlelight vigil March 19

The Las Vegas Out of Iraq Coalition invites you to a patriotic protest against the continued occupation of Iraq on the fourth anniversary of the invasion. We demand that Congress end the occupation and fully fund medical care for all injured veterans.

On Saturday, March 17 we will meet on the plaza in front of the Federal building, 333 S. Las Vegas Blvd., at 2 PM.

This demonstration, in solidarity with gatherings across the nation and a March on the Pentagon, will be the largest yet in Las Vegas.

Bring American and Nevadan flags, make a sign or hold one of ours, and invite your friends. We will have tabling to sign petitions and write letters to our elected officials and provide information about Las Vegas's many progressive organizations.

On Monday, March 19 at 7 PM Vicenta Montoya and Democracy for America will host a Candlelight Interfaith Vigil at the same location to remember and mourn the deceased, the injured and the displaced and to demand a withdrawal from Iraq. Bring your signs, candles and flags. Poets, musicians and artists are especially invited to perform their anti-war statement.

What: Peace Rally, 2 PM Saturday March 17th and Candlelight Vigil 7 PM March 19th

Where: Lloyd George US Courthouse 333 S. Las Vegas Blvd. for both events.

Why: Take a stand and send a message to Congress. Enjoy camaraderie with like-minded souls.

Bring: Signs, flags, snacks water, a chair if you want, and a candle for the Monday vigil.
