Not In Our Name . . .
STATEMENTS OF CONSCIENCE AGAINST WAR AND REPRESSION

"No election, whether fair or fraudulent, can legitimize criminal wars on foreign countries, torture, the wholesale violation of human rights, and the end of science and reason."
--from the new Not In Our Name statement

http://www.nion.us

The new Not in Our Name statement of conscience, opposing the domestic and international agenda of the Bush government, is signed by 10,000 people and appeared in the Times on Sunday, January 23.

The statement is signed by nationally known figures in the arts, academia and politics including Russell Banks, Judith Butler, Noam Chomsky, John Cusack, Angela Davis, Daniel Ellsberg, Eve Ensler, Andre Gregory, Bill T. Jones, Barbara Kingsolver, Congressman Jim McDermott (D-Wash.), Walter Mosley, James Stewart Polshek, Francine Prose, Wallace Shawn, Alice Walker, Cornel West, and Howard Zinn.

Now the challenge is to get the statement published everywhere across the country, read on local radio stations, and posted on web sites.
