It occurred to me there may be some on this list who may wish to join this re Iraq- it is certainly an opportunity. best, f. ---------- dear friends, On 13th June George W. Bush will visit NATO hq in Brussels, to meet with all NATO heads of government/state. This is a unique opportunity to let your feelings known on NATO nuclear policy, Star Wars, climate change, human rights etc. If you would like to come, let For Mother Earth know, and we will probably be able to arrange accomodation for you, otherwise please network this message to all the people and organisations you know! david email@example.com --- MANIFESTATION WEDNESDAY JUNE 13TH NATO headquarters BRUSSELS Dear Friends Over the past months everybody has been shocked by the disastrous policy decisions of US President Bush. It is obvious by now he doesn't give a damn about international agreements, he only follows the dictates from the oil and weapon industry. On Wednesday June 13th George Bush is visiting the NATO headquarters at Brussels, where he will meet the heads of state of the Western alliance. The development of Star Wars will be the major item on his agenda. Demonstration We cannot let this summit pass without making our feelings known. Under the common idea 'respect international agreements' a group of Belgian and international NGO's calls for a non-violent demonstration. At this moment the group consists of 11..11.11, Attac (against financial speculation), Bond Beter Leefmilieu (Flemish environmental umbrella organisation), War Resisters International, Greenpeace, Inter Environment Wallonie (Walloon environmental group), Oxfam Solidariteit and For Mother Earth. We plan a short march to NATO headquarters with a clear message to the Heads of state and for President Bush. All organisations and participants are invited to make signs concerning the themes of the international agreements that Bush is violating (e.g. climate, disarmament, human rights). We also have a 'Wanted Poster" that reminds people of the international crimes against Humanity and the Planet that Bush is committing. This poster can be downloaded from the website <http://www.geocities.com/bushwanted> and adapted to suit your needs. We expect some counterdemonstrations of the financial world, the oil industry and the military industrial complex which will see their welcome party for the President disturbed. The participants to the action will be invited to sign a "non-violence engagement declaration", and we expect everyone on the demonstration to take a non-violent attitude (verbal as well as physical). There will be legal support for anyone arrested, and there will also be plenty of opportunities for more autonomous nonviolent direct action against the meeting after the demonstration. The meeting point for the demonstration is 8:30 am at Metro Station "Bordet" in Brussels. The demonstration will leave for NATO headquaters at 9am promptly. We hope to make a maximum use of the internet to make this action successful. Please spread this acton alert and the 'Wanted' poster as widely as possible. Updates can be obtained on our website http://www.geocities.com/bushwanted/ You can e-mail to : firstname.lastname@example.org On Tuesday evening, June 12th there will be a protest vigil in front of the US embassy. More information about this vigil is available on the website. -- ----------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a discussion list run by the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq For removal from list, email email@example.com Full details of CASI's various lists can be found on the CASI website: http://www.casi.org.uk
