Global Day of Action on March 20 to mark first day of Iraqi invasion
On March 20, 2004, protests will take place all around the world on the one year anniversary of the U.S. bombing and invasion of Iraq. People are organizing on a global scale to demand an end to the occupation of Iraq and an immediate withdrawal of U.S. military forces from the country.

Since the invasion began, hundreds of U.S. and British soldiers and unknown thousands of Iraqi people have been killed. The Iraqi people have clearly stated that occupation is not liberation - that they want the foreign soldiers occupying their country to leave not tomorrow, but today. Growing numbers of U.S. soldiers and their families are calling to bring the troops home now. Increasing numbers of people in the United States are helping to build a movement against the occupation as they fight cuts to education, healthcare, job programs, housing and other social service programs.


Events already have been planned for NYC, D.C., Boston, LA, San Francisco.

Why not organize something in your community. There's still plenty of time. It would be awesome if the level of activity surpassed the demonstrations worldwide that took place prior to the war on Feb. 15.

I sure hope so...I could make the trip to NYC like I did last year, but DC would make it a lot more doable for me.

Helping to organize and want to help to make it be huge success!

Care to join in?

There is every intention to make this be as big an event as Feb 15th, 2003, nationwide and worldwide. I'm committed. Make it happen wherever you can! Please come and join with us in Crawford. What a statement to make. And only one month after the Dallas City Council passes the BORDC resolution against the Patriot Act.

The more the far merrier. More details to come on all that will be happening.

Horseman rides to Texas to talk hunger with Bush
By JENNIFER McKEE
Gazette State Bureau

HELENA - Doc Mishler, a Gospel-quoting itinerant horseman from Choteau, must have cut an odd figure last weekend as he hung out outside an exclusive barbecue in Crawford, Texas, thrown for the president's top fund-raisers.

Mishler, 67, who hasn't raised a penny for President George W. Bush's re-election efforts and had no invitation to the shin-dig, never got his chance to talk to the president, but he said that's OK.

Mishler spent the past year riding his trusty mare Faith and his stallion Chief Spirit from Choteau to Crawford, raising money and awareness about global children's hunger. He wore out four pairs of Wrangler jeans and three pair of cowboy boots on his long journey. Now that he's in Crawford - home to Bush's ranch known as the "Western White House" - Mishler has no intention of leaving before he gets his chance to chat with the president.

"I'd tell him, 'You can't love God and not feed the hungry children, Mr. President,'" Mishler said. "We all need to graduate from the Old Testament, where kings run around killing people because they think God told them to."


Mishler's journey, which he's writing up in a memoir tentatively titled "Living in the Saddle and Sleeping at the Foot of the Cross," began in June of 2002. The Indiana native and former Michigan philosophy professor decided to divest all his possessions and leave his Choteau home of three years to ride his horse to Mill Valley, Calif., home of "Bread for the Journey," a California-based charity.

The Prince and the Pauper

Crawford, Texas - Weird things happen in these parts. Secret Service agents gather around white vans discussing the redneck, conservative bikers who just blasted through town. Sirens flash on the dust-blown horizon. God-fearing souls hobble towards the Coffee Station, where you can find cardboard cutouts of George W. Bush and his parents propped in a corner like a toss-away from last week's county fair. Buckets of coca-cola cost 90 cents. About the closest thing to reality are the poverty-stricken shacks on the other side of the railroad tracks, where families of all race and religion stand in their yards like starving peasants awaiting the next arrival of the king, hoping to catch a stray coin and a glint of gold.

I wonder if George W. Bush ever walked to this side of the railroad tracks. It would take him about five minutes from the Coffee Station, which is the only restaurant in town and George's favorite place to grab some grub and chat it up with the locals before heading up to the Ranch for a spell of chopping wood. On his way to Poverty Row he'd find the Crawford Peace House, with its "War is Not the Answer" signs stuck into the ground. He could sit on the porch and enjoy a swing. If he had visited the house just a few weeks ago, he'd have met Doc Mishler, who is traveling with his horses Chief Spirit and Faith and his dog Czar Bear to address Congress in the Spring regarding the world's hungry children. Read about how Mishler got shut out from speaking with Bush back in August while Bush was throwing a fundraiser/barbeque for his top donors. The Crawford residents also gave Mishler the cold shoulder once they found out he was staying at the Peace House.

36. Too far for me
But I definitely will be in the streets in Chicago.

Why don't you start a separate thread in Activism and put the geographical location in the subject header?

I know the SF protest will have a DU contingent and I'm trying to get one together for Chicago.

11. More info at United for Peace and Justice
Anticipate a worldwide response on par with Feb. 15, 2003, demonstrations with some of the same planners on board.

We anticipate the European Social Forum will formally approve this proposal later this week. UFPJ, the ESF, and other anti-war activists will then build support for March 20th at the January, 2004 meeting of the World Social Forum in Mumbai, India.

Many member groups on UFPJs Steering Committee are already actively building March 20th. Military Families Speak Out, Veterans for Peace, US Labor Against the War, Racial Justice 911: People of Color Against the War, Not In Our Name, and other anti-war forces have expressed strong interest in joining this call.

Many new cities added as well.

16. People of the World Unite for Peace on March 20
Here is the mobilization E-mail and flyer being distributed by CPUSA:

Sent: Monday, February 02, 2004 2:54 PM
Subject: March 20 demo

Dear Comrades,

The Feb 1 National Committee meeting called for an all out push by the Party and YCL to mobilize for nationally coordinated local demonstrations vs the illegal US occupation of Iraq on March 20, the first anniversary of the launching of the war. Initiated by United for Peace and Justice, the recent World Social Forum in Moobai,India (the initiator of the Feb. 15 demonstrations) called for a global day of action.

Once again, millions around the world will say no to war, no to the Bush Doctrine! It is also the first of a series of peace movement activities that can help to educate and mobilize the anti-Bush vote in the 2004 elections.

During the Bush administration's drive to war on Iraq, many of our members became a part of the grassroots movement of local coalitions to try to stop the war. The Bush administration lied, sidelined the United Nations and made war anyway. Now public opinion again is shifting because the far right is willing to spend billions on war instead of in our communities with attacks on civil liberties and rights while continuing to cover-up the lies told to justify preemptive war on Iraq.

The spiraling crisis in Iraq and the impact on our communities is one of the defining issues that can help to mobilize the vote to defeat Bush and the far right in the elections.

We are asking every district and club to make a plan for how to help local coalitions make March 20 the massive outpouring of opposition to the US occupation and calling for No More Iraq's. Our active participation can help to build and strengthen the network of organized grassroots activity between now and election day for voter registration and mobilization.

Below is the organizing email sent out by United for Peace and Justice and the resolution passed at the National Committee meeting on Feb. 1.

For the Peace and Solidarity Commission,

Judith Le Blanc

People of the World Unite for Peace on March 20

International day of protest against war and the occupation of Iraq


Momentum is building worldwide for the Global Day of Action against War and Occupation on March 20, the one-year anniversary of the U.S. war, bombing and invasion of Iraq. We were right to oppose the war, and nearly a year later, we still say no to war. March 20 will be the first time the world's "other superpower," as The New York Times described the global anti-war movement, will organize massive, broad-based, internationally coordinated anti-war demonstrations since February 15, 2003. On that day, 10 to 30 million people in more than 800 cities across the globe expressed their opposition to Bush's looming war on Iraq. On March 20, we will again speak in one voice, "No more Iraqs!"

United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ), the broadest and largest national coalition fighting the Bush administration's agenda of preemptive war and empire, has called for massive demonstrations in the streets of cities, towns and villages around the world against the U.S. occupation of Iraq and an end to the Bush administration's war drive.


Nationally coordinated local actions are being planned across the U.S. New York City will be the site of a major regional demonstration. We urge the full mobilization and support of the Communist Party and the Young Communist League to organize and mobilize for these actions.

As the occupation of Iraq becomes an ever-greater quagmire and the Bush administration's assaults on democracy continue, a broad cross-section of the U.S. population is increasingly anxious about the direction the Bush administration is taking us. Our organizing for the March 20 activities gives us a major opportunity to engage the grassroots, to show that the anti-war movement is still here, and that they are not alone in wanting to change U.S. policy.

Coming in the middle of the primary season, March 20 will allow us to focus the country's attention on the ongoing reality of war and empire and the intensifying war at home. It will send a powerful message to all U.S. Presidential and Congressional candidates, as well as the Republican and Democratic Parties, that large sections of the U.S. population want an end to the policies of preemptive war, occupation, and attacks on our rights at home. Showing our strength will activate the peace vote to defeat the right.

Building March 20 also gives us a chance to broaden, unite, and strengthen diverse grassroots movements throughout the 2004 electoral season in order to be a powerful influence on November's winners.

Every Communist, young and older, every Communist Party and Young Communist League club, every peace and solidarity activist must join the effort to say no to war and occupation on March 20.

17. has there been any effort to involve anti-war veterans and politicians?
I would really like to see a broad-based protest. The following groups are on our side; have they been invited to participate?

Veterans Against the Iraq War

Military Families Speak Out

Dennis Kucinich is the obvious choice for a politician to invite to speak and participate. Howard Dean and Ted Kennedy too, if they're smart.

29. Yes. United for Peace and Justice has had both at their rallies. . .
since last year.

I was at the Feb 15, 2003 rally in New York, and there were groups from Veterans for Peace, Military Families Speak Out, Congressman Dennis Kucinich and Congresswoman Nydia Velasquez, among others.

To subscribe, visit http://www.unitedforpeace.org/email
===========================================
DONATE TODAY TO THE MARCH 20 MOBILIZATION:
http://www.unitedforpeace.org/donate
===========================================
Recent news reports confirm what we, the worldwide movement against the Iraq war, said last year. Former U.S. chief weapons inspector David Kay is now saying the government was utterly wrong about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. Secretary of State Colin Powell now says there was no Iraqi tie to Al-Qaeda.

Those of us who opposed the invasion of Iraq knew that the Bush Administration was lying about its justification for attacking Iraq.

Now that the truth is impossible to ignore, we have a unique opportunity - on March 20 - to change the course of U.S. policy.

We need your financial support to make this happen!

March 20 is the one-year anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War.

On March 20, hundreds of thousands of people around the world will take to the streets to demand an end to the U.S. occupation of Iraq and to the entire Bush empire-building agenda.

On March 20, we will remember the thousands of senseless deaths and recommit ourselves to stopping the wars abroad as well as the war at home.

March 20 will mark a rekindling of the hope that inspired the history-making global demonstrations last year on February 15 - hope for a different world, based on principles of peace and justice for all people.

To achieve the full potential of March 20, United for Peace and Justice urgently needs your financial support today.

Organizing a massive day of coordinated protest involves substantial expenses: printing and distributing hundreds of thousands of leaflets, posters, and stickers; renting sound systems and stages; installing additional phone lines, and more. Hundreds of volunteers put in time and energy, but it will increase our organizing capabilities if we can also hire additional organizing staff. We do this work in the most cost-effective ways possible, but it still takes a lot of money to make it all happen.

We need to raise $20,000 right now -- within a week -- to secure our mobilizing efforts.

We know you are outraged by the Bush Administration's policy toward Iraq, by their commitment to permanent and pre-emptive war. And we know you want to see our country move in new directions. The March 20 mobilization is an important step in that process, but we can only do our work if we have the funds to carry it out.

You can make a secure online donation right now at http://www.unitedforpeace.org/donate, or send a check or money order to United for Peace and Justice, P.O. Box 607, Times Square Station, New York, NY 10108.

If you prefer to make a credit-card donation without using our online system, you can call our office at 212-868-5545.

Almost 300 national and local organizations have endorsed UFPJ's call for demonstrations on March 20. Demonstrations are now planned in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and scores of other towns and cities. These numbers will grow as we approach March 20 and build toward a massive public outpouring of opposition to the Bush agenda.

Momentum for March 20 is also growing around the world. Last month's World Social Forum in India - attended by over 80,000 representatives of social movements around the globe - concluded with a call to support the March 20 Global Day of Action. A report on the Global Assembly of the Anti-War Movement that took place there is appended below.

March 20 will send a clear message during this election year to those seeking to lead this nation: our movement is strong, determined and growing.

Your help in ensuring the success of March 20 is critical, and it is needed today. Please make the most generous donation you can...it will be money well spent!

FOR A DONATION OF $100 OR MORE, you will receive a video of United for Peace and Justice's historic National Teach-In on Iraq, Preemptive War and Democracy. This inspiring event, held on March 31, 2003 with upwards of 2,000 people in attendance, brought together many of the most prominent and articulate voices of our day, including: Arundhati Roy, former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, Howard Zinn, Damu Smith, Phyllis Bennis, Hussein Ibish, Kathy Kelly, Rania Masri, Ralph Nader, Rev. Graylan Hagler, and, in one of his last public appearances, Edward Said. The three hour video of the teach-in includes all of the presentations made at this remarkable gathering.

DONATIONS OF $200 OR MORE can be considered tax deductible. Just make a check out to A.J. Muste Memorial Institute and specify "UFPJ" in the memo. Mail it to UFPJ at P.O. Box 607, Times Square Station, New York, NY 10108.

GLOBAL ANTI-WAR ASSEMBLY BACKS MARCH 20
Focus on the Global South
February 3rd, 2004

The General Assembly of the Global Anti-War Movement called on the world to fill the streets on March 20 to demand an end to the occupation of Iraq.

The General Assembly of the Anti-War Movement convened on January 19 at the World Social Forum (WSF) in Mumbai, India.

Meeting for the whole day, the Assembly began with an assessment of the current political situation, followed by reports from various activists involved in various anti-war movements around the world. Reports were also made by many anti-war campaigns such as the World Tribunal on Iraq, the "Close the US bases" campaign, the Campaign for Disarmament, the Occupation Watch Center, the Caravans to Iraq and the Civil Missions to Palestine. It ended with a session dedicated to strategizing on ways forward and common campaigns to be supported.

Envisioned to be the biggest and most representative meeting of the anti-war movement since the invasion, the Assembly was a collective effort by anti-war coalitions spanning all continents of the globe.

The Assembly had participants and endorsers from the largest anti-war coalitions around the world including the European Coalitions which organised the massive marches on February 15th last year, Stop the War Coalition in the UK, United For Peace and Justice and ANSWER in the US, the Anti-War Coalition in South Africa and the Asian Peace Alliance, as well as various social movements, trade unions and farmer and peasant groups such as the CUT in Brasil, the Social Movements Network and Via Campesina.

Competing with the lively drumming of nearby cultural performers, the dust and noise from the constant flow of passing demonstrations and the general chaos of the WSF, the Assembly discussed, debated and strategized on the ways forward to globalising the resistance and ending the occupation of Iraq.

The Assembly ended with the call for an International Day of Action on March 20, the anniversary of the attack on Iraq. It calls for all movements in all continents to organize mass protests on that day to demand the end of the occupation of Iraq. Different countries will organise protests of different scales and forms; the important point is to mark the anniversary across the world.

Resistance in Iraq and around the world is growing daily and March 20 will be the day when the global resistance tells not only Bush but all the occupation troops and warmongers that the movement will not rest until the occupation of Iraq and Palestine and the "war against terror" is ended.

Better start making plans. The date is quickly approaching.

It looks like some Chicago-area DUers will be getting together.

31. Less than a month away
Is your city on the list yet? Is there a neighboring city where you can attend a rally? Heck, why don't you organize one yourself.

Time to make history again! :bounce:

42. The Press Release for Crawford does not mention "hometown".
We call it the Western Whitehouse. If you would like a copy of the Press Release send me a PM.

If you have any time to donate, want to help get the word out please contact marchcrawford.org, northtexaspeace.org or the dallaspeacecenter.org

We need lots of help.

41. NC, Ft Bragg or Asheville haven't decided yet
Edited on Thu Mar-11-04 08:18 AM by G_j
The Ft Bragg rally will be truly historic, but it is also important to show our community here in Asheville we still care (the last large scale anti-war activity was when the war began and it resulted in some 40 arrests).

I'm torn between the two.

43. I Have but one question to ask, How can we best support our troops?
Edited on Thu Mar-11-04 03:36 PM by anarchy1999
I believe, to the very depth of who I am, that I can support our troops best by ending this illegal occupation of a sovereign country. This is a government installed by the US and Britain over the course of the last 90 years.

I want our men and women home. This is wrong. If we are to invade Iraq for their possesion of WMD's, then we must look to where the WMD's came from and were supplied to from. Then we are forced to look at the man in the mirror.

Mesopotamia is the "Cradle of Civilization".

"We Americans" have enabled our governmemt, our elected officials to make horrendous decisions on our behalf that very few of us supported.

In our silence, we have been complicit. We have let them get away with murder and crime. All in the name of "democracy, peace and justice". We stand ashamed in the court of world opinion and yet the world still loves us. US as in "we the people". Our time is growing short.

A soldier back from Iraq discusses the war and the U.S. soldiers fighting that war, the suicides, and much more.
Interview by Daniel Redwood

Because members of the military are limited in their ability to speak out publicly, the soldier interviewed here must remain anonymous. A military medic who served in the Gulf War in the early 1990s, he is a member of the Reserves who was called up to serve in the current war in Iraq. His primary role is to deliver medical care to U.S. military personnel as well as Iraqis.

Vet and Military Dad Michael McPhearson Reports from Baghdad!

Well, I'm back from my second trip to Iraq (the first was in Gulf War I or, as I say, "the 1st ground campaign of the current war"), and this time I made it to Baghdad. I find that words cannot truly capture my experience, but I want to share my impressions and the messages that Iraqi people sent home with me.

The front of the march will include organized chanting, followed by a section of In the Heart of the Beast puppets. Those who prefer a more quiet, solemn, or singing atmosphere will come together behind the puppets. Of course, you may move from one section of the march to another, as you like.

We will arrive on the Capitol steps for a rally, with speakers, music, and a few moments of silence in honor of those who have died and suffered in the Iraq War.

50. Was wondering...
if anyone here is going to the Columbus, OH rally. I'm thinking about it... I haven't found anyone who is interested in going up with me (I'm in South Central Ohio), but I may go, anyway.
