On September 29 we had planned to demonstrate against the Bush administration’s reactionary foreign and domestic policy and the IMF and World Bank. In light of the current crisis, with its tragic consequences for so many thousands of people, we have refocused the call for our demonstration to address the immediate danger posed by racism and the grave threat of a new war.
All those who oppose racism should stand shoulder to shoulder with our sisters and brothers in the Arab, Muslim and other communities of color who are the victims of violence, scapegoating, harassment and intimidation in a racist frenzy that’s being created throughout the United States. We call on all people—Black, Latino, Asian, Arab, Native and white—to stand together and say no to racism. We urge all organizations to join together at this critical time.
CALL TO ACTION
National March in Washington DC
Tell George Bush: WE SAY NO TO RACISM AND WAR!
We demand that the government spend billions to rebuild New York City and compensate the victims of the September 11 bombing and their families, many of whom have lost not only loved ones, but also jobs, homes and health care – not for a new war against the people in the Middle East or elsewhere!
Now is the time for all people of conscience, all people who oppose racism and war to come together. The government is attempting to take away our civil liberties and to create a climate in which it is impossible for progressive people to speak their mind. The Bush administration is attempting to take advantage of this crisis to militarize U.S. society with a vast expansion of police powers that is intended to severely restrict basic democratic rights. If you believe in civil liberties and oppose racism and war, join us on September 29 in front of the White House.
MARCH AND RALLY Saturday, September 29, 11 a.m. In front of the White House
