Families and friends in Olympia say:
"End the Occupation of Iraq NOW!"
"Bring them home & keep them home!"
Tuesday, Nov. 6th - 4pm Percival Landing
Gather to march in our Streets, our Port, our Home.
Military Ships Return to Olympia - On November 5th military ships begin off-loading equipment returning from Iraq at the Port of Olympia. Our demonstrations are intended to show growing opposition to the war and the use of the Port of Olympia to ship military equipment to the Middle East in support of US occupation.
The Stryker Brigade whose equipment is returning lost 48 soldiers during their deployment. The brigade was the same as that whose equipment was shipped out in May of 2006 from the Port of Olympia prior to their deployment. We intend to keep our soldiers home and end the loss of innocent Iraqi lives facilitated by the militarization of our ports.
