Subject: [AL-AWDA-News] 1,500+ ENDORSE JAN. 18-19 ACTIONS IN DC


Tens of thousands will converge in Washington DC
January 18-19, 2003
and the Convening of the GRASSROOTS PEACE CONGRESS

As momentum builds for the upcoming January 18-19 mass
demonstration and People's Peace Congress to oppose a
new U.S. war on Iraq, the urgency to take massive
action has never been greater. Today (Nov. 21), the
Financial Times quoted former Secretary of State
George Shultz as saying "there will be military
action. I would be surprised if we have not acted by
the end of January." Yesterday (Nov. 20), top Bush
security advisor Richard Perle told a meeting of
Labour Party MPs in England that the administration
was determined to go to war. MP Peter Kilfoyle, based
on Perle's comments, reported: "President Bush intends
to go to war even if inspectors find nothing"
(Mirror/UK, 11/21).

We do not accept the logic of these war-mongerers that
a war against Iraq must happen. In fact, the people of
the world oppose this war. Each and every person must
take action now to prevent this catastrophe. We will
not be passive observers while the Bush administration
attempts to carry out a war for Big Oil and the
domination over the people, land and resources of the
Middle East.
