WEST COAST CONFERENCE FOR CAMPUS ACTIVISTS ORGANIZING AGAINST WAR AND RACISM IN THE WAKE OF SEPTEMBER 11
Saturday and Sunday, November 10 11
UC Berkeley campus
By: California Schools Against War
Web: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CSAWConferenceCommittee
Contact: StopTheWarConference (at) hotmail.com

California Schools Against War invites all campus based anti-war coalitions (or those interested in forming a campus based coalition) to come to discuss and coordinate education, action, and organizing. If you or your campus coalition is interested in attending, please email: StopTheWarConference (at) hotmail.com immediately

We want to strongly encourage people from campuses in Southern California, and campuses in Oregon, Washington, Arizona, and other nearby states to attend, so that our conference truly represents the breadth of the West Coast. A delegated work session makes it possible for distant schools to be important participants in this conference.

For a delegated conference to be effective, it is important that campus coalitions determine their delegates in advance of the conference. In each campus, we ask that people come together to choose 5 delegates that will fairly represent the visions and goals of (and be held accountable to) your campus coalition.

POINTS OF UNITY:
The following are the three Points of Unity that were agreed upon by CSAW. These points were kept broad and simple to keep the coalition together and truly unified.
1) Stop the war.
2) Defend Arab Americans, Muslim, Middle Eastern, Central Asian, and South Asian communities from attack. No racist scapegoating.
3) Defend civil liberties.

midst of this national crisis, Congress is right to examine and reinforce
our collective security, but not at the price of our liberty. We can be both
safe and free.

Each week there are guest speakers, creative performances, and an open mic for community
comments and conversation. These events are gathered with five intentions in mind:
---To call for peace in all our dealings with others regardless of ethnicity, religion, race, gender, sexuality, or citizenship.
---To call for our leaders and community to reconsider our policies of aggression, retaliation, violence, and vengeance.
---To recognize the fears, sufferings, and pains, of Americans at the hands of Americans, non-Americans, and unknown agents. We also recognize the fears, sufferings and pains of all human beings and of the earth at the hands of Americans, non-Americans, and unknown agents.
---To recognize that violence is harmful to all involved. It is not the only way to express grief and anger. The creation of more suffering is the least respectful way to honor those who have passed.
---To publicly acknowledge the fact that peace is eternal and infinitely powerful. The power of peace, love, and faith is more effective and more secure than any effects that violence can create.
