Tues. Sept 18: Citywide Meeting to Discuss, Plan Response to Latest War Buildup

Where: Agape House 1046 W. Polk
When: Tuesday, September 18, 6:30 PM
- Emergency Action Alert-

Chicago DAN to convene Citywide Community Meeting to discuss impending war.

The Chicago Direct Action Network has issued a call for a citywide emergency meeting to discuss the progressive movement's response to the war buildup. All are urged to attend, bring news, concerns, ideas, and suggestions for action.

Where: Agape House 1046 W. Polk
When: Tuesday, September 18, 6:30 PM

Chicago DAN is sponsoring this meeting on the basis of the five points below:

1. We grieve for all those people killed, injured and bereaved in the horrific events in New York and Washington on September 11th. 2001. The thousands of working people killed and injured in this outrage are not responsible for the foreign policy crimes of corporate America and its governments.

2. We grieve for all those people killed, injured and bereaved in the invasions and bombings which have resulted from the policies and actions of the US corporations, US government, and their allies in countries like Panama, Sudan, Iraq, Palestine, and elsewhere.

3. We believe that US corporate power, and the US government policies that defend and promote corporate power through support for dictators, torture, bombings, invasions and wars, set the stage for the tragedy of September 11th. We are suffering the terrible backlash brought on by US corporate and government foreign policies.

4. We oppose any attempt to target and blame any of the peoples of the world or any minority groups here in the USA for these horrific events and we oppose the US government, which represents the US corporations, taking military action against any peoples of the world.

5. The same US corporations and US government that are attacking working people in the US are attacking working people abroad. Their aim is to increase their profits and power at the expense of the living standards, rights and lives of all working people. Already the fear, anger, and even panic caused by the tragic events of September11th, and whipped up by the corporate media, are being used by the oil companies to jack up gas prices and by the government to attack our civil rights. US corporate interests, backed by US government violence, are the real source of the tragedies of September 11th.
