It is time to act! As the U.S./NATO bombs are raining down on Belgrade, Pristina, Aleksinac, and other cities in Yugoslavia, as hundreds of thousands of people have been made into refugees since the beginning of this bombing, we are urging you to join us in the newly-formed Emergency Mobilization to Stop the War.
On June 5, there will be a national mass march from the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial to the steps of the Pentagon. Unless we stop this madness, we will be witness to the Pentagon unveiling a Yugoslav Veterans'' Memorial. On June 5, our demand will be "money for jobs and education, not for war in Yugoslavia."
Buses and car caravans will be coming to Washington D.C. for the June 5 demonstration from hundreds of cities and towns throughout the United States.
This is the most important anti-war demonstration since the Vietnam war. We hope you will do everything in your power to participate in this effort. We need to organize buses, print and circulate posters and leaflets, send out email notices and press releases, organize fundraising events, send mass mailings and information packets, hold house meetings, send our spokespersons on speaking tours and recruit thousands of volunteers.
We are counting on you to help us in this massive grassroots campaign to build a new anti-war movement. The timing of the June 5 National Mass March could not be more urgent. Why? Because we are on the brink of the abyss. Hundreds of thousands of troops may be dispatched in a bloody rerun of Vietnam. Ten years after the end of the Cold War, the Pentagon is embarked again on another destructive adventure. Instead of a so-called peace dividend, we are being treated to the anti-people ramifications of the New World Order.
We urgently need to collect the funds necessary for a huge demonstration. It is through the self-sacrifice and cooperation of thousands of people of conscience that we will succeed in building this new movement. Donations to the "People's Rights Fund/To Stop the War" are tax deductible.
Please see our web site for an endorsement/volunteer form, fact sheets, flyers, and more. Feel free to call our office or come by to volunteer your efforts.
End the war now before its too late!
