The widening spiral of U.S. military intervention and economic sanctions has had a devastating impact on the lives and future of children in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, the Balkans and Latin America.

Infrastructures for clean water and health care have been destroyed and schools are barely functioning. Again and again U.S.-sponsored wars have targeted vital civilian infrastructure.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30 : SECOND NY PROTESTS AGAINST "BLACK HAWK DOWN" - No new war in Somalia!

Wednesday, January 30 @ 6 pm
Union Square Theater: 13th St. and Broadway, NYC

This movie is a blatantly racist attempt to create support among the U.S. public for a new war against Somalia. According to the Bush Administration, Somalia is at the top of the Pentagon's list of countries to be the next major target of the so-called "war against terrorism."

In his review of "Black Hawk Down," New York Times movie reviewer Elvis Mitchell wrote that the movie "converts the Somalis into a pack of snarling dark-skinned beasts it reeks of glumly staged racism."

All those who believe in justice for the people of the world must take a stand against U.S. threats against Somalia, Sudan, the Philippines, Iraq

Called by NY A.N.S.W.E.R.
Call 212-633-6646 or email ANSWER@afgj.org for info.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1 & SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2
