Flick your lights at 8 pm for peace.....
THIS IS A WORLD WIDE CALL FROM CITIZEN TO CITIZEN
WE SHALL STOP THE WAR!
Bush has obtained authorization to use nuclear arms. We are on the verge of a major disaster. The only power which can prevent this tragedy is that of the world public. We call on all those people all over the world who are against war to join forces in JOINT and CONTINUOUS action.
The action is very simple: Every night at 20:00 pm local time, we will flick lights on and off for one minute whereever we are, be it our home, office or car. And at the same time, we will make the darkness reverberate with the sound of our whistles, horns and pots and pans to make others see and hear our protest.
If we can spread the word of this action, millions of people who say “What can I do by myself?” will get involved and the lights of millions of houses flicker like fireflies. Please circulate the appeal ATTACHED to this e-mail and send it to as many people as you can. Announce and endorse this action in the February 15th demonstrations in your countries. Organize special events where lights will be turned off to get press and TV coverage. Have TV channels broadcast your most popular writers, artists, stars flicking their lights on and off to participate in the campaign. Have trade unions, professional chambers and organizations, non-governmental organizations call their members to participate in the action...
A WORLD FREE OF WAR IS POSSIBLE!
NO TO WAR IN IRAQ COALITION (*)
(*) Platform in Turkey with broad membership consisting of workers’ and state employees’ confederations, all professional chambers, 59 art institutions and non-governmental institutions representing all sectors of society.
WE CAN STOP THE WAR!
THIS WORLD IS OURS!
Holding that all war-caused deaths without any exception are manslaughter, feeling the pain of bombs dropped on Iraq in our consciences, wishing the 21st century to be a century of peace, believing that a world free of war is possible, we hereby declare that we will hold to account all governments who participate in the war in Iraq.
*Adding my voice on to the voice of the millions, I warn the USA: DO NOT TOUCH IRAQ!
*I warn my own government and parliament: DO NOT BECOME ACCOMPLICES IN THIS CRIME!
To demonstrate my determination to stop this war, I will be turning off my lights at 20.00 p.m.every night for one minute, starting Saturday, February the 15th. And I call on all citizens of the world to flick their lights on and off at 20.00 pm every night until we put an end to this war.
I am fully convinced that world public is stronger than governments.
THIS IS A WORLD WIDE CALL FROM CITIZEN TO CITIZEN.
PS: Send this appeal to your parliament and government. Send it to all addresses, institutions, friends and international addresses you know, circulate and disseminate it as widely as possible.
