Chicago Teacher's Union Passes Anti-War Resolution & Sponsors Bus To DC Protest (english)
09 Jan 2003
Modified: 10 Jan 2003
Got this e'mail from A.N.S.W.E.R. re the Chicago Teacher's Union Anti War Resolution.



Chicago Teachers Union House of Delegates' resolution:



-Whereas, we value the lives of our students, sons and daughters, brothers
and sisters more than Bush's control of Middle East oil profits

-Whereas, we have no quarrel with the ordinary working-class men, women, and
children of Iraq who will suffer the most in any war

-Whereas, the billions of dollars being spent to stage and execute this
invasion, means billions taken away from our schools, hospitals, housing,
and social security

-Whereas, Bush's drive for war serves as a cover and a distraction for the
sinking economy, corporate corruption, and lay-offs,



-Whereas A.N.S.W.E.R., Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, organized 200,000
marchers in D.C. and 5000 in San Francisco on October 26, and is now
organizing tens of thousands to converge in Washington DC January 18-19,
2003 for a mass demonstration and grassroots peace congress,


Be it resolved that the CTU sponsor a bus to go to Washington, D.C. on
January 18-19, to demonstrate against war on Iraq

Great!! But there's a typo... (english)
10 Jan 2003



Great! But there's a typo: San Francisco Protest should read 50,000 not 5000. But great, shows how broad the anti war sentiment is in this country. So far 31 American cities, many of them major cities, have passed anti-war resolutions. And you can be sure that for every protester that can make it to these demonstrations, there are at least a 1,000 who feel the same way.
