Anti-War Events Building to September 24th


By David Swanson

On September 15, Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey and other congress members will be holding hearings on Capitol Hill on the issue of creating an exit strategy for Iraq. This event will be nine days before what organizers are hoping will be the biggest ever march against the war in Washington. Many of the same groups organizing the march on Sept. 24th have decided to hold a smaller rally in front of the White House on the 15th to support the action in Congress and the demand to get U.S. soldiers out of Iraq.

This has resulted in confusion for at least some small number of people. Here is an attempt to clarify.

There are many events happening both in Washington and around the country between now and the 24th as part of a growing movement. If you can come to DC and can only come once, come on the 24th. If possible, come on the 24th, 25th, and 26th. Take part in all of the activities that you'll find here: http://unitedforpeace.org and here: http://pdamerica.org

No buses are being organized from anywhere for the 15th. The rally at 5 p.m. that day in front of the White House will consist largely of people from DC, Maryland, Virginia, and surrounding areas who are able to easily make the trip or stop by after work. Everyone who comes will leave with a stack of flyers promoting the march on the 24th, the workshops on the 25th, and the day of lobbying and civil disobedience on the 26th.

Other events going on right now include three bus tours from Camp Casey to DC, stopping in various parts of the country and arriving in the nation's capital on the 21st. One bus will make it as far as Raleigh, N.C., by the 15th, and Ann Wright, a diplomat who resigned in opposition to the war and who served as coordinator of Camp Casey, will hop off to come up to DC and speak at the rally, before rejoining the bus for the rest of its trip.

There are also efforts going on around the country to pressure Congress Members through their district offices to oppose the war and to demand an investigation of the lies that launched it. These include a campaign demanding answer's to Cindy Sheehan's questions. And there are Camp Caseys and anti-war marches being organized around the country both on the 24th and before. Links to many of these activities are on the right side of this site: http://afterdowningstreet.org

The hearings and rally on the 15th will come four days after the Pentagon- and media-sponsored fascistic exploitation of the 9-11-2001 tragedies in the form of a march and country music concert in DC in support of killing Iraqis. There will be counter-demonstrations that day. But, more importantly, I think, there will be a popular push four days later, on the 15th, to end the war.

On that day, not only will Congresswoman Woolsey hold hearings (minority party unofficial hearings without subpoena power), but activists will hand in to congress members a stack of signatures on a petition in support of an exit plan for Iraq. You can sign the petition here: http://www.peoplespetition.org Gathering signatures on this petition is one of the more important steps that can be taken right now.

Another is to do what we will certainly try to do at the rally on the 15th and at the events of the 24-26th, namely draw the connections between Iraq and New Orleans. We have put the bulk of our nation's resources into an illegal war at the expense of everything else. We've diverted the National Guard from guarding the nation. We've enacted an energy strategy that focuses on steps to increase, rather than decrease, global warming. And even people who did not previously object to the war are now questioning Bush's priorities.

Alex is joined by three different guests for a two and a half hour 9/11 truth expose. Greg Szymanski and William Rodriguez discuss the controlled demolition of the twin towers. Rodriguez was a material witness to bombs going off in the basement of the north tower and his story has been blacked out by the mainstream media.

Also included is former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Reagan, Paul Craig Roberts, who recently went public with his doubts about the official 9/11story.

Government Insider Says Bush Authorized 911 Attacks
From Thomas Buyea
9-17-4

Keep in mind when reading this, that the man being interviewed is no two-bit internet conspiracy buff.

Stanley Hilton was a senior advisor to Sen Bob Dole (R) and has personally known Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz for decades. This courageous man has risked his professional reputation, and possibly his life, to get this information out to people.

The following is from his latest visit to Alex Jones' radio show.
To hear Alex's interview with Stanley Hilton -
http://www.prisonplanet.tv/audio/091204hilton.htm

What if:

* The Twin Towers were not hit by commercial airliners?
* The World Trade Center was brought down in a controlled demolition?
* The Pentagon was not hit by a 757?
* Flight 93 was shot down?

Four years after September 11th, the American People are left with more questions than answers. This documentary addresses those questions, as well as providing the evidence necessary to begin answering them. From the phony bin Laden tape to the lack of a 757 at the Pentagon, Loose Change wraps everything up into an hour of solid evidence.

Hey can somebody get some busses to the shelters to pick up some of the New Orleans LA , MI , and AL who have no where to go and nothing to do who would like to participate in D.C. I'll bet there are a few who would be happy to lend a hand. Bush blew it and they know what that feels like first hand.

the NFL in full swing and MLB playoffs, do you think anybody will particularly give a flying fuck???

I love sports, but I love my Country and its Constitution more...People that are informed and care will be there. You won't be missed. Enjoy your game!
