Mass March on Washington & Die-In Led by Iraq Veterans.

When the march arrives at Congress, the Iraq War Veterans and family members will be the leadership of a mass die-in symbolizing the deaths of an estimated 4,000 U.S. servicemembers. A powerful representation of the death of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis will be the other central component of this dramatic confrontation with Congress at the time that they will be debating spending another $100 billion to sustain the criminal occupation of Iraq
  • The Die-In is a civil disobedience action that will involve at least 4,000 people who are able to risk arrest.
