Message from Greater Manchester Coalition Against sanctions and Bombing of Iraq As an urgent priority we are attempting to make links with all groups and individuals who wish to come to be part of a national network of campaigners against war on Iraq- taking on the issues of bombing and sanctions as an act of war. On the 5th Feb, Market St, Manchester, we will be handing out leaflets for the Feb 16th Iraqi Speaker meeting, report back from the recent Human Relief Foundation visit to Iraq, Friends Meeting House, Manchester; on the 12th some will be encouraging people to send postcards as part of the Voices action; on March 18th there will be a rally in Manchester; and on April 8th a teach-in on Iraq at the Friends', Manchester. Other events as yet not given a date are various actions around army recruitment offices to disrupt their recruitment and publicise the war on Iraq and either a national or regional conference to make contacts with all anti-war groups around the country and discuss the possibility of founding a national Campaign against War in the Gulf, to unite people who are opposed to this war and who do not wish to see sanctions as a separate issue from the imperialist attacks on Iraq. We wish to work with people in as open, friendly and democratic manner as possible. We believe the attempt to de-link sanctions from bombing or to support some sanctions is tremendously dangerous to the movement and to the Iraqi people. One final aim, crucial we feel to this movement, is to make links with Iraqis, both in terms of visits such as the Sheffield delegation, Human Relief Foundation or Voices in the Wilderness sanction busting, and politically with groups such as the Iraqi CP or other Iraqi organisations. Jason- for more information please phone 01618817774 In addition, I am publishing a National Newsletter, as agreed at the meeting. The first eight articles to reach me by Wed 9-2 will be printed (no more than a half page of A4 please) and please also send any announcements of events, demos etc. ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com -- ----------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a discussion list run by the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq For removal from list, email email@example.com Full archive and list instructions are available from the CASI website: http://welcome.to/casi
