EMERGENCY ACTIONS
to STOP the WAR on IRAQ BEFORE it STARTS
- initiated by the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition
September 14-16 -


Between September 14 and 16, thousands demonstrated against a new U.S. war on Iraq, in Emergency Actions called by the A.N.S.W.E.R. ( Act Now to Stop War & End Racism ) Coalition. Protests took place in Washington D.C., San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, Seattle, Fresno and other cities.


In Washington DC, over 100 protesters arrived at 8 am to picket outside of the hotel where over 100 military contractors were buying and selling their latest weapons of mass destruction and Donald Rumsfeld was set to be their honored guest. On the West Coast, 3,000 marched in San Francisco, 2,000 in Los Angeles, and many more in other cities.


The Emergency Actions were initiated as part of A.N.S.W.E.R.'s campaign to Stop the War on Iraq Before it Starts, which will culminate with the National March in Washington DC and join action in San Francisco, set for October 26, which will be a massive national mobilization.

ANTI-WAR RALLY OUTSIDE AIR FORCE EXPO


About 50 anti-war demonstrators rallied yesterday morning at Connecticut Avenue and Woodley Road NW near the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, where the U.S. Air Force Association is holding its annual Aerospace Technology Exposition.


The rally was organized by International ANSWER, a coalition of anti-war groups.
Protesters chanted slogans opposing possible military action in Iraq and criticized the Pentagon's spending policies. Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld was scheduled as a keynote speaker, but he was unable to attend.


The expo continues through tomorrow, and protesters said they plan to demonstrate each day. The Air Force event features booths from more than 100 defense contractors promoting everything from air-to-ground missiles to waterproof combat boots.

BY ANGELA WATERCUTTER, Associated Press Writer
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Hundreds of anti-war protesters marched and spoke out Saturday against any possible military action in Iraq.
"We believe that this war can be stopped if the people intervene in the political process," said Richard Becker of the International Act Now to Stop War and End Racism Coalition.
At the San Francisco rally attended by about 500 people, participants held signs saying, "Stop the War In Iraq" and "Stop Bush's War At Home and Abroad."
In Los Angeles, about 300 people marched and chanted "George Bush, what do you say? Change regimes in the USA." at a federal building near the UCLA campus.
"It's really wrong that we're even considering attacking Iraq," said Jennifer Kelley in San Francisco. "The Iraqis have made no offensive move. It just seems like (Bush) wants to finish his father's war."
