      1. At this crucial time in history, to discuss the possibility of a new anti-war movement and the direction it may take, as well as how that movement could best connect to existing movements.
      2. To organize against the racist scapegoating that is happening against Arab, Muslim and all people of Middle Eastern background.
      3. To discuss civil liberties abuses that are coming in the wake of Sept. 11 and how that affects grassroots organizing.
      4. For folks to share knowledge about the WHY behind Sept. 11.

      The American flag belongs to all of us. Peace is an American Dream - war is our worst nightmare. While unclear what the current flag displays really mean, it is safe to assume that revenge and support for the upcoming war effort is a part of that display. We need to counteract that display with one of our own - demonstrating our disgust with all forms of terrorism, including state (U.S.) sponsored.
