A Month of Activity

The month between September 11 and October 7 has been filled with many different kinds of events and actions sponsored by different organizations, all of which could be listed in a common calendar. Campuses could be filled with debates and protests. Important anti-globalization actions have been called for Washington, D.C. at the end of September.

We should all be prepared to respond to major escalations. We encourage individuals, organizations and coalitions to come together and figure out how to make all this happen - how to work in ways that will strengthen and expand the existing movement and build the kind of movement of resistance that can stop the horrors the U.S. government is unleashing on the world, in our name.

We must all of us, together, dare to change the course of history.

October 6-7, 2002

The Not in Our Name Project invites and urges you to be part of planning and building mass protests on Oct. 6 in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and other events across the country to take a stand against this war on the world; against detentions and roundups of Muslims, Arabs, South Asians and other immigrants; and to police state measures, including attacks on civil liberties, efforts to suppress dissent, and moves to establish a citizen spy network.
