April 9 and 10 Rallies Against Wars at Home and Abroad
The Committee to Stop FBI Repression (CSFR) at www.StopFBI.net is asking you to join us in supporting anti-war protests. On March 19 there are local rallies, many with International ANSWER Coalition. Then we go all out for New York City on April 9th and San Francisco on April 10th, with the United National Antiwar Committee. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested to help distribute information about the CSFR (pdf).
On April 9th the Committee to Stop FBI Repression will be represented in full force, including a large contingent from Minnesota coming in for the protest. We would like to invite you to join the CSFR contingent on Saturday. We'll be meeting up at 11:45am in front of the Staples on the West side of Union Square between 14th and 15th St. We will rally together and march down to Foley Square as a group.
We also need volunteers to help staff the CSFR table down at Foley Square after the march. Please get in touch if you can take a short shift, or help set up or take down.
There will be work sessions in preparation for the demo on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 2pm-9pm at the IAC which is at 55 W 17th St. 5th floor. CSFR will be making a banner and signs--any one who would like to help will be warmly welcomed.

WHO ARE THE WARMAKERS?
THEY are the government, corporate, and financial powers that wage war, ravage the environment and the economy and trample on our democratic rights and liberties.
WHO ARE THE PEACEMAKERS?
WE are the vast majority of humanity who want peace, a healthy planet and a society that prioritizes human needs, democracy and civil liberties for all.
The Warmakers spend trillions of dollars yearly on endless wars in pursuit of global domination and profit while murdering millions of innocent people, installing corrupt and hated governments and funding occupations that displace millions from their homelands – trampling on the right of oppressed people to self-determination.
THEY send our youth – victims of the economic draft – to fight over the very fossil fuels whose unrestrained use threatens the future of the planet while corrupt and virtually unregulated oil giants dump billions of gallons of death into our rivers and oceans.
THEY wage a fake “war on terrorism” at home – the new McCarthyism – that promotes racism and Islamophobia aimed at destroying civil liberties and democratic rights.
THEY grant repeated and untold trillions in bailouts to banks, corporations and financial institutions while breaking unions, robbing pensions, destroying jobs, foreclosing homes, de-funding education and vital social services and are once again threatening Social Security and Medicare.
THEY offer no solutions to the current crises other than more of the same.
THE PEACEMAKERS DEMAND a better world. Only a massive, united, inclusive and independent movement has the power to bring it into being.
WE DEMAND Bring U.S. Troops, Mercenaries and War Contractors Home Now: Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan! End the sanctions and stop the threats of war against the people of Iran, North Korea and Yemen. No to war and plunder of the people of Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa! End U.S. Aid to Israel! End U.S. Support to the Israeli Occupation of Palestine and the Siege of Gaza!
WE DEMAND trillions for jobs, education, social services, an end to all foreclosures, quality single-payer healthcare for all, a massive conversion to sustainable and planet-saving energy systems and public transportation and reparations to the victims of U.S. terror at home and abroad.
WE DEMAND an end to FBI raids on antiwar, social justice, and international solidarity activists, an end to the racist persecution and prosecutions that ravage Muslim communities, an end to police terror in Black, Latino and Native American communities, full rights and legality for immigrants and an end to all efforts to repress and punish Wikileaks and its contributors and founders.
WE DEMAND the immediate end to torture, rendition, secret trials, drone bombings and death squads.
WE ARE DEDICATED TO A WORLD
OF PEACE AND JUSTICE.
