A Palestinian Youth chants in unity for the peoples' struggle against imperialism

October 17th, San Francisco, California – On the occasion of the 8th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, The International League of Peoples’ Struggle – Strength in Unity Contingent took to the streets of San Francisco to protest the unjust wars and occupations of Afghanistan (now referred to as Af-Pak in Washington), Iraq, Palestine, and the Philippines.

We stand with our brothers and sisters overseas in raising our voices when theirs are silenced. We stand firmly against Imperialism, even while the U.S. left is reeling from the deceits of the Imperialists on Wall Street and in the White House.

We know that the only way stop the oppression is by relying on solid grassroots organizing and community based building. Only by thoroughly arousing, mobilizing, and organizing can our objectives be realized.

We oppose any escalation to the war and occupation, In fact, we call for the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. troops abroad. We call for the support of Peoples’ struggles against Imperialism–especially that of the United States which continues to wage and expand wars of hegemony and occupation, under the pretense of being democratic liberators, of bringing freedom to the third world.

We–people here and throughout the world–are being forced to bear the burdens of the world economic crisis. We urge the unity of people in the US with the struggles of people worldwide against imperialism.

The ILPS Strength in Unity Contingent was organized by the ILPS-Bay Area Grassroots Organizing Committee, which includes representatives of Arab Resource and Organizing Center, BAYAN-USA (AnakBayan East Bay, Babae San Francisco, Committee of Human Rights for the Philippines, and the League of Filipino Students), Collision Course Media, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, and other allies and supporters.
