Anti War Rallies in New York, April 9 and San Francisco, April 10
I received this from votersforpeace.org. Let's reject Wars!Dear Americans, show the world that you Do Not support your government's criminals!
"Below is an announcement of anti-war rallies in New York on April 9 and San Francisco on April 10 which Voters for Peace has endorsed. Please join us!

The efforts of the anti-war movement need to escalate as the United States conducts wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya. The Libyan war, which the administration refuses to call a war, is rapidly evolving. The U.S. attack which was initially called putting in place a "no-fly zone" is evolving. Now NATO, which will be dominated by the U.S., will be enforcing the no-fly zone and the United States will be focused on attacking ground forces. The U.S. is rapidly becoming an air force for rebels fighting a civil war. If Gadhafi does not leave quickly, but digs in for a civil war as his son has promised, then next steps will likely be arming the rebels, U.S. advisers on the ground (which have already been reported for one month) and then U.S. troops. And, of course, those troops will need bases something the U.S. African Command (AfriCom) has been seeking on the African continent.

The U.S. has already spent a billion dollars in Libya, without any congressional review of approval at a time when the economy continues to be collapsed. The U.S. has spent $1 trillion in Iraq with $2 trillion more needed for the aftermath of the ongoing war, especially caring for injured soldiers. And, the U.S. is spending $1 million to keep each single soldier in Afghanistan for a year. In Pakistan, a CIA private contractor (mercenary) caused a diplomatic catastrophe that resulted in more than a hundred agents leaving the country.

The anti-war movement needs to raise its voice on all of these issues. the upcoming demonstrations are one part of that effort. For more information visit, [link to nationalpeaceconference.org] and review the announcement below.

Please attend these demonstrations in New York and San Francisco and urge everyone you know to join us.

Sincerely,

Kevin Zeese
Executive Director

Dear Peace Activists,
Please help spread the word! The major national Antiwar Rallies in NYC at Union Square, on Saturday, April 9 and in San Francisco on Sunday, April 10 are just 2 weeks away. Momentum is building based on the urgency of responding to the new attacks in Libya, no end to the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, more attacks and threats to Gaza, ugly attacks on Muslims, new attacks on unions and collective bargaining and a new rounds of cutbacks of every possible social program, particularly hitting the Black and immigrant communities and the unemployed.

This week has seen student demonstrations all across the country against the devastating attacks on education. Students, teachers and parents are asking why is there always money for another war, for more Tomahawk cruise missiles, aircraft carriers, destroyers, nuclear submarines and F-16 bombers, while schools are closing, tuition increasing and faculty facing unprecedented layoffs.

BY BUS, TRAIN & IN CONTINGENTS
In New York City we are hearing reports of buses coming from the up and down the East coast and the Mid-West as far as Minneapolis. Cars, vans and Peace Trains on all the commuter lines into NYC are scheduled.

We are hearing of lots of plans for contingents of organizations and activists. Plans include a Asia contingent, Palestine contingent, Brooklyn for Peace contingent, South Bronx community contingent, and Irish contingent, various student contingents, and large union delegations. Groups in New Jersey, in Jersey City and Newark and on Long Island are holding morning rallies and heading to Union Square in large delegations. (Please be sure to post your information by clicking here for the transportation form)

MUSLIM SOLIDARITY
Because of the dangerous escalation of attacks on Muslims across the U.S., solidarity and unity of the antiwar movement with our Muslim sisters and brothers has become a major focus of these 2 major national rallies.

Last week a leader of United National Antiwar Committee and a leader of the Muslim Peace Coalition, USA spent 6 days meetings with leaders of the Muslim community in the New York City area. More than 75,000 leaflets were distributed at the mosques for Saturday, April 9th and the Muslim community in New York is organizing buses from the entire area.

The Muslim community is organizing for April 9th because they are for peace and they have seen the peace movement stand behind them and fight against Islamophobia.

LABOR SUPPORT
Over 500 organizations have now endorsed the rallies on April 9th in New York City and April 10th in San Francisco including significant labor unions like 1199 SEIU East, which organizes health-care workers, Transport Workers Union, Local 100, which organizes NYC bus and subway workers, Teamsters, Local 808, which organizes workers on the commuter trains in New York. On the West Coast, the 25,000 member SEIU local 1021 has endorsed as has the International Longshore & Warehouse Union Local 10 and others.

It is time that the antiwar movement was out in the streets in big numbers to stand with those calling to Bring the Troops Home Now, in support of those fighting Islamophobia, along side those fighting for democracy throughout the Arab World and with working people and unions fighting to preserve collective bargaining and for a decent life.

The least accomplishment is to show the Administration and The World that (I hope!)most American people Do Not support Wars! I guess you as Americans know what picture of yourself has been created around the world. Are you OK with this much hatred that people around the world feel about Americans because of the aggressive, criminal acts of your gov.?!!!

In addition, this is the only way to express a nation's opinion on war. Your representatives and other politicians are not your voice. Same here in Canada and all othere countries. They have separated from the public long long time ago. We the people have to show our opposition to wars. Wars are hell. They ruin lives, nations, histories,... and the Planet!

Do you still need more reasons?lolsign

At least we can show the world that not all Americans want to kill the innocent -- all are NOT part of the Zionist/Neocon/Military Complex.
