State of the Union: Plan Now!

Tuesday January 31 - Drown Out Bush's Lies during the State of the Union

Saturday, February 4 - Protest at the Seat of Government! BUSH STEP DOWN

It's going to take an organized movement of millions to Drive OUT the Bush Regime: The LA Times reported last month that Bush's advisors hope his speech will lead the populace to "turn the page" on the debacle of the past few months, as crime after crime has been exposed and Bush's poll numbers fell. They're hoping to regroup and "reposition" Bush, to focus people on going forward united with his program. There is not doubt that he will push on "to radically remake society, very quickly, in a faxcist way, and for generations to come", as our Call says.

Can you please help spread this meme?
"Project for a New American Century" is the think tank that created US government neocons. Get people Googling PNAC, and they will find out that this neocon agenda is hardly what they voted for, indeed is dangerous to American life and to the world. Write it, say it - and now WEAR this meme.

A.N.S.W.E.R. Responds to UFPJ: Our Position on Unity in the AntiWar Movement

From A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Steering Committee

Ten weeks after the September 24 demonstration brought more than 300,000 people to Washington DC in a massive show of strength by a united antiwar movement, the leadership of the United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) has publicly announced its unilateral intention to effect a long-term split in the antiwar movement. This is the second time in seven months that UFPJ has publicly proclaimed its intention to split the movement, coupled with a false and ugly attack on the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition. In May 2005, they announced that they would hold a second and separate demonstration in Washington DC on September 24 rather than work in a united front with A.N.S.W.E.R.. Fortunately, the progressive movement overcame that splitting effort, which would have seriously weakened the movement at a critical moment.

Time For Apologies

By Hollis Martin

I have spent a great deal of time ruminating over the devastation of Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as other areas of the world we have plundered into and where we have left our remnants of death scattered about. I watch and listen to the various groups activating antiwar rallies to try and end the devastation, and while they are good and well meaning, I also believe personally that the era of such protests is now ending. It is time to be newly creative once again but in ways that allow us to speak out FOR something, not AGAINST it. While being against something expresses how we feel, it still carries a negative edge. I think now more than ever, this country is craving positive feelings, something good to be speaking out FOR! In a time when everything in the world seems so bleak, we need our hopes raised by having a cause to feel positive about. I would like to share my idea with you about how to do this.

1. At December 3 meeting USLAW approves the resolution on support for antiwar legislation (see below).

Corporate television news is undermining your right to know.

By IWT News

Thousands of people have died, and are still dying, in a war that a majority of people believe is based on half truths and misinformation. Congressman John Murtha said, "We've increased terrorism in the Middle East... We've increased instability in the Middle East." The world is a more dangerous place for all of us.

Tickets for the event are sold out, however, the luncheon tickets that are closest to Mr Bush were sold for $10,000.

Bird Dogging Hillary Clinton: The Antiwar Movement Steps Up

December 10, 2005

One has to be pleased that the antiwar movement is taking shape. Finally the target isn’t just George. W. Bush and gang. Last Monday night at a chic Manhattan fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, antiwar activists staked out the Senator and vowed to do so until she changes her position on the war.

Peace Action Calls for International Support of Peace Movement

Proposal for International Groups to Affect U.S. Foreign Policy

Unfortunately the Bush administration is driving horrible U.S. foreign policy including the occupation of Iraq. For those working on peace issues—especially on ending the occupation of Iraq—a change of U.S. policy is the top priority.

Unknown to many in the U.S. and my guess to our colleagues internationally is that the peace movement in the U.S. is woefully under-funded and under-resourced. Peace Action—the largest U.S. grassroots peace organization—has a combined budget of it’s various entities (100 Affiliates and Chapters across the country) of less than $5 million USD annually.
There are many reasons for this:
