THE WORLD UNITES FOR APRIL 12
International Day of Action
On April 12 -- in addition to the National March on
Washington DC and joint actions in San Francisco and Los
Angeles -- massive and coordinated demonstrations will
take place around the world, in the Middle East, Latin
America, Africa, Asia and Europe.
In England, the Stop the War Coalition UK -- the group
that organized over 1.5 million people to demonstrate in
London on February 15 -- will hold their next national
demonstration on April 12. See http://www.stopwar.org.uk
for more information.
In past months, massive demonstrations on January 18 and
February 15-16 were the decisive factor in changing the
political climate contributing to the political isolation
of George W. Bush, Tony Blair and their war plans. There
have been many other huge demonstrations in the United
States and around the world on October 26, March 15 and
March 22. The whole world is now taking to the streets in
almost daily protests. April 12 will be another
opportunity for a coming together in vast numbers to show
the continuing and growing power of the anti-war movement.
Stop the War Coalition UK, A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition and
German anti-war organizers have put out a joint call to
rally international participation on April 12. It reads in
part: "It is becoming clear to millions that this is not a
war for Iraqi liberation but a bloody military invasion.
... further coordinated international action can make it
difficult for [Bush and Blair] to continue the carnage.
... We call on the anti-war movements to organize the next
day of global capital city protests on April 12."
Protests are already scheduled for Brazil, Mexico,
Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, South Korea, the Philippines,
Italy and Sweden, in addition to England, Germany and the
U.S. Other protests are currently in the planning stages
and will be announced soon.
