EMERGENCY NATIONAL ANTI-WAR CONFERENCE
SATURDAY, JUNE 1
*No new war against Iraq
Bush has declared it's war time all the time. After the massive bombing in Afghanistan, the escalation of intervention in Colombia, the brutal U.S.-backed Israeli invasion of the Occupied Territories of Palestine, the Bush administration has now declared they are preparing for a major ground and air war against Iraq. Tens of thousands will die unless we act now. The people of the world can stop this war before it starts. Join us Saturday, June 1 in New York City for a national day-long conference of panels and workshop discussions to plan a comprehensive anti-war strategy.!

Millions have come into the streets all over the Arab world to show their support for this resistance.
