Anti-War Call to Action!
extend our most heartfelt sympathies and
condolences to all those who lost loved ones on
September 11, as well as to the thousands of
workers who were in lower Manhattan that day.
Like many others, our organizations had members
and friends who worked in the World Trade Center
and the area, and who lost loved ones. In light
of the current crisis, with its tragic
consequences for so many thousands of people, we
call for a demonstration to address the immediate
danger posed by racism and the grave threat of a
thousands of families are in mourning for the
death and injuries of loved ones, the Bush
administration is taking advantage of the tragic
human toll to strengthen the forces of repression
while intensifing the Pentagon's war drive,
especially in the Middle East. Arab and Muslim
peoples in the United States are reporting that
they are facing racist harassment in their
communities, on their jobs and at mosques. Anti-Arab
racism is a poison that should be repudiated.
government is attempting to take away our civil
liberties and to create a climate in which it
could be impossible for people to speak out. The
Bush administration is attempting to take
advantage of this crisis to militarize US society
with a vast expansion of police powers intended
to severely restrict basic democratic rights.
people in the United States, we need to reflect
on US government policy around the world that
devastated the lives of millions of people. Now
is the time for all people of conscience to join
together. If you believe in civil liberties and
oppose racism and war, join us on September 29th
of the White House and in San Francisco. We urge
all organizations to join together at this
demand that the government spend billions to
rebuild New York City and compensate the victims
of the September 11th bombing and their families,
many of whom lost not only loved ones, but also
jobs, homes and health care -- not for a new war
against the people in the Middle East or
those who oppose racism should stand shoulder to
shoulder with our sisters and brothers in the
Arab, Muslim and other communities of color who
are the victims of violence, scapegoating,
harassment, and intimidation in a racist frenzy
that's being created throughout the United States.
We call on all people---Black, Latino, Asian,
Arab, Native and white--to stand together and say
no to racism.
