      NO WAR IN IRAQ - MASS DEMONSTRATION
      --------------------------------------------------------------

      Tens of thousands will converge in Washington D.C.
      on January 18-19, 2003 (Saturday and Sunday) for a
      MASS DEMONSTRATION and the Convening of
      the GRASSROOTS PEACE CONGRESS

      As momentum builds for the upcoming January 18-19
      mass demonstration and People's Peace Congress to
      oppose a new U.S. war on Iraq, the urgency to take
      massive action has never been greater. Today, Nov. 21,
      the Financial Times quoted former Secretary of State
      George Shultz as saying "there will be military action.
      I would be surprised if we have not acted by the end
      of January." Yesterday Nov. 20, top Bush security
      advisor Richard Perle told a meeting of Labour Party
      MP's in England that the administration was determined
      to go to war. MP Peter Kilfoyle, based on Perle's
      comments, reported: "President Bush intends to go to
      war even if inspectors find nothing" (Mirror/UK, 11/21).

      We do not accept the logic of these war-mongerers that
      a war against Iraq must happen. In fact, the people of
      the world oppose this war. Each and every person must
      take action now to prevent this catastrophe. We will
      not be passive observers while the Bush administration
      attempts to carry out a war for Big Oil and the domination
      over the people, land and resources of the Middle East.
