Earth To Bush:NO IRAQ WAR!

12 September 2002

Human Rights Activists Greet President's U.N. Speech by Unfurling a 1500-Square-Foot Banner Over the East River

NEW YORK-Human rights activists pre-empted President Bush's speech before the U.N. General Assembly early Thursday morning by unfurling a 50-foot by 30-foot banner over the East River. The banner, which read "Earth to Bush: No Iraq War," was hoisted in the air by four giant helium-filled weather balloons. The protesters sought to illustrate the virtually unanimous global opposition to the administration's planned invasion of Iraq.

Recalling that Article 2(3) of the UN Charter requires all Member states to "settle their international disputes by peaceful means;"

Rationale for War Still Cloudy as Costs Become Clear

Support for the President is evaporating in the face of his plans for a unilateral invasion of Iraq. Recent polls indicate that a majority of Americans are not satisfied with the President's rationale for war. While the justification for war remains cloudy, the costs of a US attack are becoming more clear. Skepticism to the administration's plans is increasing among American citizens, and the question of Iraq is likely to have an impact in November.

Two recent polls show that American concerns about the President's foreign policy are growing. According to a New York Times/CBS poll:

· Sixty-four percent of respondents believe the administration has failed to adequately explain why military action is required against Iraq.

· Fifty-six percent of respondents believe that the United Nations should be given more time to secure the return of weapons inspectors.

Iraq is no threat

Bush wants war to keep US control of the region

by Mo Mowlam

The Guardian

QUOTE: "The many words that are uttered about Saddam Hussein having weapons of mass destruction, which are never substantiated with any hard evidence, seem to mean very little. Even if Saddam had such weapons, why would he wish to use them? He knows that if he moves to seize the oilfields in neighbouring countries the full might of the western world will be ranged against him. He knows that if he attacks Israel the same fate awaits him. Comparisons with Hitler are silly - Hitler thought he could win; Saddam knows he cannot. Even if he has nuclear weapons he cannot win a war against America. The United States can easily contain him. They do not need to try and force him to irrationality."

On-going Campaigns Get Involved!!


Take The Pledge to Oppose War with Iraq

"A time has come when silence is betrayal. That time is now." Martin Luther King Jr.

To take the pledge:

Note to Southern California Residents: The coalition For World Peace will be demonstrating every Friday from 5pm to 7pm at the Westwood Federal Building. For more information call 323-852-9808


National Emergency Actions to STOP THE WAR BEFORE IT STARTS

No New War Against Iraq --March and Rally

"Money for Jobs, Housing, Healthcare, Schools, NOT for WAR"

Sat. Sept. 14 Westwood Federal Building

11000 Wilshire (at Veteran) 12 noon

"No New War Against Iraq!"

During the Gulf War, 200,000 Iraqis were killed by more than 88,500 tons of explosives dropped by UN/U.S. bombers. This slaughter was paid for by our tax dollars. In the years since, more than 1.5 million Iraqi civilians have perished as a consequence of malnutrition and disease caused by economic sanctions. We must stop the Bush administration's mad drive to launch a new, all-out military aggression against Iraq. Stop the war before it starts!
