George Bush is expected to give a major policy address on Wednesday, January 10, to outline his new strategy for Iraq; it is increasingly clear that he is likely to announce that he will be sending more troops. On Thursday January 11th anti-war protests are planned across the country. In Palo Alto, community members will gather at El Camino Real and Embarcadero Road, to protest against "this amplification of an outrageous and illegal failed war that has already resulted in the deaths of over three thousand U.S. troops as well as hundreds of thousands of Iraqis". In San Francisco, there will be an antiwar march starting at 6pm at the Montgomery Bart Station. Many other protests and anti-war events are planned around the Bay Area.
