Hey folks, there are flyers, phone calls and emails going around to mobilize as many people as possible as quick as possible to join in the international protest against the coming war with Iraq. Attached is a copy of a flier, but here's the info in simple format.

Please see the attached flyer and forward it to all who might be interested. If you try to forward the attachment, make sure it's reallly attached because sometimes that gets messed up.
