Demand for troops’ homecoming lasts

May 1, 2008

  War is much more than just slogans. This is why at the event Rally in the River Valley, which I was involved in organizing, we had veterans and activists speak about the issues and their personal experiences.

Those in attendance

also read the names of the American soldiers from Wisconsin that have been killed in both conflicts so far.

  A February 2006 Zogby poll showed that 72 percent of U.S. troops in Iraq thought the U.S. should exit the country within a year from that date, and more than one in four thought troops should leave immediately.

  We now find ourselves more than two years down the road and there has not been a full withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

  Socialist Alternative and the River Falls Anti-War Coalition say, “SUPPORT THE TROOPS! BRING THEM HOME NOW!” And we mean it!
