Sunday, 2/3: Protest Philippine Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's Chicago Visit

WHEN: Sunday, February 3, 2002 at 12:30 pm
WHERE: The Pennisula Hotel, 108 E. Superior, Chicago (Superior is one block south of Chicago Ave between Rush St. and Michigan Ave)
EMERGENCY PROTEST ACTION! - STOP THE US WAR MACHINE IN THE PHILIPPINES!

Protest Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's Chicago!

WHEN: Sunday, February 3, 2002 at 12:30 pm
WHERE: The Pennisula Hotel, 108 E. Superior, Chicago (Superior is one block south of Chicago Ave between Rush St. and Michigan Ave)

WHY: 660 + US Military troops and advisors are currently active in "live training" excercises with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). This number is estimated to be the largest deployment of US combat forces outside
of the war in Afghanistan. This includes the 160 US Special Forces, such as Navy SEALs, Army Green Berets, Marines and Air Force Special Forces, that will supposedly serve as "advisers" to the AFP.

IT IS NOT TRAINING, BUT DIRECT US MILITARY INTERVENTION in the Philippines and violates its national sovereignty and Constitution which does not allow foreign troops on Philippine soil.

EXPOSE THE US' (WORLD) WAR (III) CAMPAIGN AGAINST "TERRORISM" - JUSTICE NOT WAR!
