NATIONAL DAY OF DIRECT ACTION AND CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE
to Stop the War at Home and Abroad
MONDAY APRIL 7th, 2003
In our collective efforts to build a mass movement of principled non-violent resistance to the U.S.-led war on Iraq, Direct Action to Stop the War (San Francisco/Bay Area) is calling a National Day of Direct Action and Civil Disobedience to Stop the War at Home and Abroad.
We call upon all cities, organizations, and individuals to organize
widespread non-cooperation focussing on: Federal and Government buildings
Oil corporations Arms manufacturers and transportation systems
On Monday April 7th, instead of going to work or school, sustain the
resistance to this war by participating in or supporting mass nonviolent
direct action in any way possible.
1) If the government and corporations won't stop the war, we'll shut down the warmakers! We will raise the economic, social and political costs of waging this war, and continue to stop business as usual
until the warstops. We are publicly declaring and organizing mass
nonviolent direct action now with the express intention of stopping this war against Iraq and future wars.
2) Assert our power to transform our city from profits, oil and war to
resistance and life! We will create an open, welcoming, inspiring space
that gives voice to the anti-war majority as an assertion of real
3) Uproot the system behind the war (and behind the war at homeracism, poverty); help catalyze mass movements to challenge corporate and government power and create socially just, directly democratic, ecological, peaceful alternatives.
