Message from Greater Manchester Coalition Against sanctions & 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.
