ALERT: MASS ANTI-WAR MOBILIZATION IN SAN FRANCISCO MOVED TO SUNDAY, FEB. 16

Please help us stop the war against Iraq! The next major anti-war mobilizations are happening around the world on the weekend of Feb. 15 & 16. We hope to get millions of people into the streets to say no to war!

The San Francisco march and rally, which had been planned for Feb. 15, has been changed to Feb. 16. The new information is below. We regret that we had to change the date, but the Chinese New Year's Parade--which is expecting more than half a million people--was also scheduled for Feb. 15. Out of
respect for the Chinese community, we changed the protest to the following day.

Please help us spread the word about the date change. We're hoping that the media coverage of the Feb. 15 protests will help us build for Feb. 16 in San
Francisco. Let's get out even more people on Feb. 15 than we did on Jan. 18. We have the power to stop this war!

UPCOMING ANTI-WAR ACTIVITIES

FEB 4, 2003

The Price of Oil is Too High--International Day of Action
Protest for peace at your local gas station. No war on Iraq!

ORGANIZE a demonstration for peace at your local gas station, on February 4th. On that day, hundreds of gas stations across the country and around the world will be targeted as we send a clear message that access to oil is not worth war.

Leafleting, vigils, street theater, and other forms of nonviolent educational direct action are all encouraged. Our intent is to communicate that clean energy alternatives to oil exist, and that they can increase our
security and give us true energy independence.

For more information and protest locations, see www.TargetOil.com
