Los Angeles, CA – “We must protest publicly the threatened U.S. military attacks against the people of Syria and denounce the government and media lies used to justify a missile attack. We must also continue to expose the U.S. military targeting the poor - especially Blacks and Chicanos - for recruitment,” states veteran Chicano and anti war activist Carlos Montes.

Montes is among those organizing a protest in Boyle Heights (1241 South Soto Street), Aug. 29, between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. to say “No U.S. war on people of Syria and the Middle East.”

The call for the action points out that Aug. 29 is the anniversary of the historic Chicano Moratorium protest against the Vietnam War. On Aug. 29, 1970 over 30,000 Chicanos marched in the heart of East Los Angeles protesting the Vietnam War, the high casualty rate of Chicano soldiers and racist conditions in the barrios.

The Los Angeles Aug. 29 protest against a military attack on Syria will take place in front of U.S. Marine Recruitment Center. It is one of the many anti-war protests that are scheduled to take place across the country.
