      SF Frontlines Peace & Antiwar Calendar

      Issue #2 10/01/01

       

      This is the second issue of the San Francisco Frontlines Peace and Antiwar Calendar. We will try to include every coalition and committee meeting, every teach-in and speak-out, every mass demonstration and letter writing campaign. It represents our humble contribution to building the broadest possible anti-war movement by ensuring that all of our readers are resources for anyone who wants to lend their shoulders to the tasks at hand. All dates subject to change. We will update the info as we go, but call (415) 452-9992 for more information.

      To send information for actions, conferences, meetings and to receive the Peace and Antiwar Calendar, send e-mail to: Progress.

       

      AT THE FIRST SIGN OF WAR

       

      EMERGENCY RESPONSE: If and when the US begins to bomb or attack any country in retaliation for the terrorist attacks against NYC and Washington, DC, we will rally at Powell and Market that very day at 5PM to demand that the bombing and/or attack cease. Bring your banners and signs. Everyone welcome.

       

      Tuesday, October 2nd


      Senator Dianne Feinstein attacks
      Civil Liberties!

      Protest this attack against foreign students.
      Tuesday, October 2nd
      5 p.m. at
      Dianne Feinstein's office
      One Post Street, Suite 2450
      San Francisco
      (at Post and Market, near
      Montgomery
      Street BART station)

       

      Feinstein wants to introduce a bill that would ban all new visas for international students for 6 months! This would affect over 100,000 students. Feinstein is also proposing to impose a “tracking” system to force those in the country to report periodically to the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.

      Call Dianne Feinstein's office to express your opposition: (415) 393-0707 or directly to her legislative staff: Camille Camacho and Lavita Strickland: (202) 224-3841.

      Organized by the Berkeley Stop the War Coalition. For more information, please call (510) 649-1887 or email hglaphat@...
