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.

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.
