      SF Chronicle: US likely to use depleted uranium again

      International Action Alert

      Turkey has made history!

      Please join us in giving support to the Grand National
      Assembly of
      Turkey for their decision not to support the war against

      Dear Friends,

      On March 1st, as 100.000 anti-war activists were marching
      in the
      streets of Ankara, the Grand National Assembly of Turkey
      said "NO TO
      by defeating the "War Resolution" prepared by the
      government earlier
      last week.

      This is tantamount to saying "YES" to the will of the

      With their votes, the deputies said "NO" to:

      -- the deployment of foreign (i.e. American) soldiers in
      -- the use of bases and ports by foreign military forces,
      -- the deployment of Turkish soldiers outside Turkey (i.e.

      This means that there will be no "Northern Front" in the
      planned war!

      We believe that this decision might be decisive in

      The U.S. pressure on the Turkish government is stronger
      than ever.
      In the midst of an economic crisis, Turkey is likely to

      U.S. support.

      It is thus very important that the international community
      support to the government and the Grand National Assembly
      at this
      moment! They need to know that they are not alone!

      Please write to members of the government, the parties in
      the Grand
      National Assembly, and the President, and let them know how
      you feel
      about their decision on March 1st.

      In solidarity,

      Peace Initiative of Turkey
