WASHINGTON (Circa) — Women and allies are gathering in the nation's capital this weekend to mobilize a protest on the Pentagon.
The Women's March on the Pentagon will officially take place Sunday with a march and rally against the "USA's military aggression." This effort is not in conjunction with the national organization known as the Women's March that also leads national movements on a variety of women's issues and are responsible for the popular annual January marches and rallies across the country.
The Women's March on the Pentagon says they want a complete end to wars abroad, closure of foreign bases and a slashing of the Pentagon budget in order to fund social programs across America. The march is taking place on the 51st anniversary of an antiwar march on the Pentagon in 1967 that brought 50,000 people to action.
