Come join other antiwar activists at UC Berkeley this Saturday, April 25th, for the Campus Antiwar Network's West Coast Conference. See details below.
Millions of Americans voted for Barack Obama in November hoping for an end to U.S. wars in the Middle
East. But Washington is sending more troops to Afghanistan and continues to bolster Israeli apartheid.
The occupation of Iraq is not being ended, but repackaged. And the military budget is bigger than ever!
The Campus Antiwar Network invites all student activists and groups to participate in the Bay Area CAN
Conference. We will be debating the politics the movement should take up, and the strategies and tactics it
will need to end Washington’s wars of aggression. For more information, call (415) 335-0953.
