TAKE ACTION NOW TO STOP THE WAR ON IRAQ!
Call for local, decentralized actions on December 10th!

United For Peace, an emerging national campaign working to stop the war on
Iraq, is coordinating a day of local actions on Tuesday, December 10th,
International Human Rights Day.

Hundreds of communities around the country will organize events on this day
and United For Peace will publicize them as a national day of action.

We want you to be involved in this effort! UNITE FOR PEACE AND SAY NO TO
WAR!!!

Read on for suggestions about what you can do in your community. For more
information about the United For Peace Campaign contact 202-862-9740 x.3038
or 415-255-7296.

Please post your events to www.unitedforpeace.org!

HERE ARE SOME IDEAS FOR WHAT YOU CAN DO:

*TALK to friends, neighbors and colleagues about what war will mean for
people in both the Unite States and Iraq.

*ORGANIZE anti-war rallies at the offices of Congress members who supported
the war resolution, military bases, or military recruitment centers.

*BUILD a campaign to get your local city council, student government, union,
or other civic body to pass a resolution against the war. To find out more
about this kind of community organizing effort go to www.citiesforpeace.org.

*EDUCATE your community by holding teach-ins at high schools and colleges on
U.S. - Iraq relations or on the realities of war.

*DEMONSTRATE your opposition to war by wearing a blue and white ribbon or
armband.

*TAKE ACTION by joining a nationally coordinated campaign of non-violent
civil disobedience with the Iraq Pledge of Resistance. For more information
contact 301-589-2355 or pledgecoordinator (at) starpower.net or see
www.peacepledge.org/resist.

*GIVE out information and anti-war flyers. A downloadable anti-war flyer
(³Top Ten Reasons Not to Invade Iraq²) will soon be available at
www.unitedforpeace.org.

*COMMIT yourself to overnight peace vigils or peace encampments in front of
local federal office buildings.

*CHALLENGE war propaganda by putting a sign in your window or on your door.

*CREATE actions that highlight the role of U.S. oil companies and the U.S.
Oil addiction as driving forces behind the proposed war on Iraq. To join
with students who plan to protest at gas stations contact STARC at
nknewkirk (at) yahoo.com.

*MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD! Phone or fax blast the White House and tell them NO
WAR ON IRAQ!!!

Together we can stop this war before it starts - seize the moment!
