The NION (Not In Our Name) project organizes for two
days of mass action to voice opposition to the U.S.
government's open-ended war on the world, and
discriminatory detentions as well as attacks on civil
liberties in its own country. These will be National
days of mass-resistance to Bush's politics "in the
name of all the American people"! The goal is to send
a strong message of peace to the people of the world.
Only together can we change the course of history, and
in these dangerous times we must dare to do so.
On Sunday, October 6th there will be a mass protest in
L.A. starting at 2 p.m. (gathering at 1 p.m.) at the
Federal Building in Westwood. A march to the U.S. Army
Reserve Center is planned, ending with a Rally after
returning to the Federal Building around 6 p.m.
On Monday, October 7th, the first anniversary of the
U.S.-declared war on Afghanistan, everyone is
encouraged to organize for, and/or participate in direct
actions all over Southern California (colleges,
universities, schools, government buildings, churches
and so on) to publicly express resistance to the U.S.
government's course of military aggression abroad, and
domestic police state repressions.

success. Anyone's talents can be put to practice, and
we cordially invite you to contribute in whichever way
you can. Only in collective effort will a change be
possible. Come on out and flummox us with your most
outrageous ideas. Make the events fun, and have a good
