1) Int'l Day of Action for the Iraqi Resistance

We call upon all anti-imperialist forces to endorse this call and to
prepare action in their country. The day of action was a product of the
discussions of Mumbai Resistance in January 2004.

In Iraq a battle of historic importance is raging. After two wars of
aggression and a genocidal embargo claiming 2 million lives and having
devastated an entire country, the Iraqi people is confronting the
illegitimate and brutal occupation by the US and their allies. The heroic
resistance of the Iraqi people against the Anglo-American invaders is
legitimate according to international law and the UN Charter, including the
right to resort to armed means. They are claiming their inalienable
right to national self-determination and sovereignty. But at stake is much
more, namely the very future of the US attempt to erect their global
empire, that is to say the future of humanity.

The battle of the Iraqi people is the battle of all movements, peoples
and nations fighting for their liberation from the imperialist world
system led by the US. Therefore we have to firmly rally behind the Iraqi
resistance. If we are able to support their struggle to smash the US
attempt to build a puppet regime and to eventually drive out the
invaders, it will result into a victory for mankind. It will not only give new
momentum to the struggle of the Palestinian and Afghan people, but will
lead to a new offensive of the liberation struggles all around the

Thus we call upon the democratic forces of the world, the anti-war and
the anti-globalisation movements to join hands in a international day
of action for the victory of the Iraqi resistance with demonstrations
all around the world on September 25, the Saturday before the anniversary
of the Palestinian Intifada.

Stop the occupation of Iraq and Palestine!
Imperialist troops and bases out!
Down with the US preventive war and their empire!
