12th Anniversary of the US Invasion of Iraq

A horrible crime against humanity, of course.

I'm glad people are still protesting the endless evil bullshit.
Antiwar activists protested an “endless war” on the 12-year anniversary of the Iraq invasion by demonstrating in front of the White House and then marching to the Capitol.

As a symbolic gesture on Saturday, the protesters dropped mock coffins in front of the White House and near lawmaker offices as well as offices of several security contractors in Washington DC, CNN reported.

The rally, dubbed the "Spring Rising”, was organized by the ANSWER Coalition, a protest group consisting of many antiwar and civil rights organizations which is “dedicated to the fight against racism and imperialism.”

Speakers at the event condemned the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, drone attacks targeting civilians in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia as well as US “provocation” in Russia, Ukraine and Eastern Europe.

They also warned against war with Iran.

Cindy Sheehan, one of the rally’s key organizers, criticized US President Barack Obama for expanding the US wars to include more countries than even his predecessor, George W. Bush.
