An open letter to United for Peace and Justice, Northeast Ohio Antiwar Coalition, A.N.S.W.E.R., Win Without War, US Labor Against War, Not In Our Name, National Student and Youth Peace Coalition and all other antiwar organizations.

To effectively counter U.S. military aggression around the world we must organize our movement based on unity, solidarity and democracy. Our goal must be to get as many people as possible in the streets on one date to call for an end to occupation, to bring the troops home now! We need to again mobilize masses of people in the streets to show that the people of the world still say NO to war!

The war continues in Iraq as more Iraqis and American troops are killed. The U.S. military "victory" is being exposed for what it really is — a brutal military occupation. The people of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine are all suffering under U.S.—or U.S.-financed— occupation. The purpose of U.S. policy of war and occupation is to protect corporate interests.

Our tax dollars are being robbed from our needs for schools, housing, healthcare, and a clean environment, to pay for U.S. military build-up in over one hundred countries around the world.

Armed with the most powerful weapons of mass destruction, the U.S. government is attacking us at home, too. Thousands have been rounded up and deported or held without rights or representation in the name of "Homeland Security."

Congress is poised to further attack our civil liberties with Patriot Act II—which gives the government and police even more power to dispense with our rights.

We support all the ongoing antiwar actions and organization including the international September 27th demonstrations, the A.N.S.W.E.R.-initiated September 28th actions, and the USLAW conference scheduled for October 25th. But we think that there is an urgent need to mobilize all antiwar people on a single date, and Oct. 25th seems to be the date that already has momentum (with A.N.S.W.E.R.'s call and willingness to unite with others on that date).

We need to include all organizations and individuals—national, local and international—who want to organize around this date, in the planning and democratic decision-making process. We need to expand our leadership committees to include as many representatives from as many groups or geographic areas as possible. We must include grass roots local groups from all over the country into one democratic, organizing campaign around one unified date of action throughout the world.

End the occupation!
Bring the troops home now!
U.S. out of the Middle East!
Defend civil liberties and human rights!
Fund human needs, not occupation, of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine!
