CALL FOR COLLECTIVE NONVIOLENT DIRECT ACTION:
CITIZEN STRIKE FOR PEACE 28th FEBRUARY 2003
National Peacemaking Citizen Strike
February 28, 2003
All US patriots who oppose a war against Iraq are called to walk in the footsteps of Gandhi and Martin Luther King by joining a national citizen strike on Friday, February 28th.
In the tradition of nonviolent direct action, those who support peace will on that day refuse to collaborate with our government's plan to launch a war for oil against a country that is already devastated by twelve years of US-led bombing and sanctions, a country in which at least a million innocent civilians have died at our hands, and a country that has no way to defend itself.
On February 28th we will instead bring business-as-usual to a halt and engage in peacemaking work in every town and city all over this nation.
By taking this action we demonstrate to our government leaders that they do not have our consent to inflict yet more suffering and death on the people of Iraq.
By taking this action, we demonstrate to our government leaders that we are not willing to exchange young Americans lives for the oil reserves that lie beneath Iraqi soil.
By taking this action we demonstrate to our government leaders that we see through their fear-mongering, disinformation, and news control.
By taking this action we demonstrate to our government leaders that they can expect widespread active resistance to any war they choose to launch with such callous disregard for the human cost.
By taking this action we put the powers in Washington DC on notice that the people of the United States still do have power too and are not about to relinquish it to those who neither represent our interests nor speak in our name.
Time is short. Send this call for collective nonviolent action to all your networks today.
Meanwhile, wear a green ribbon for peace and decorate your yard, car, and other public spaces with green ribbons signifying our collective commitment to a just, peaceful, and humane world.
Be of good heart. We can do this.
