New Yorkers need your help (english)
07 Feb 2003
NYPD and the Mayor (and guess who else) do NOT want this march to take place. Please sign the petition telling city authorities to let the Feb. 15 peace march happen. And spread the word to your friends!

http://www.PetitionOnline.com/FEB15/petition.html
Here are some of the comments of signers:


The right to free speech, assembly and dissent; freedoms our own politicians are attempting to deny patriotic citizens. Let us not be lead by our fear but by our love for our country and planet.
--No. 678 Leah Payne

Mayor Bloomberg, you're giving the whole world the distinct impression that you are uncomfortable with democracy. It's very odd. This is what democracy looks like.
--No. 578 Shawn Goldak

There is no more important issue in the country today. Please don't play into the hands of our enemies by limiting the American right to free speech. Vietnam Vet with Purple Heart and 29 yrs government service.
--No. 669 Ray Greiner


Undecided on the war, but we need to have a full, open debate. This is America, not the USSR.
--No. 597 Kevin Block-Schwenk

As the guardians of the city that suffered the attack on 11 September 2001, surely you can appreciate the need to allow the voices of those who want every effort made to find a peaceful resolution, and to avoid inflicting on another civilian population an even more devastating destruction than that which New York suffered. And given our government's accusations re: Iraq's muffling of their own population, surely you understand the importance of standing up for free speech and the right to demonstrate in our own country.
--No. 569 Judith D. Hearn

In a democracy, the people must be heard.
--No. 616 Jennifer Prather

New York has the opportunity to join with 26 other cities worldwide in solidarity for people who say "no war!"
--No. 274 Marilyn Welker

I am flying from Alaska to attend this protest!
--No. 242 Harper Simmons

I am a WWII vet with 5 battle stars.
--No. 104. Jim Mohn
