Declare Your Independence

Cindy Sheehan is right. This is for real.
An invitation to the:

PHILADELPHIA EMERGENCY ANTI-WAR CONVENTION
Independence Center, Philadelphia, PA
JULY 4, 2007, Starting 1 PM

In the spirit of our Declaration of Independence, join activist organizations throughout the country to collaborate and forge common strategies and actions. As our forefathers of this nation did, we too must face tyranny, this time from the collusion of government, big business, media, and religion.

We convene to form a strategic alliance with peace, pro-impeachment, civil liberties, 9/11 Truth, and other groups to develop a comprehensive strategy and implement actions to deal with this emergency.

Together we can eliminate the common root cause of our separate activist concerns. During this time of urgency, petty differences or past transgressions diminish as the need for each other increase, we need each other now. Through this union we can access the only power feared by this corrupt alliance ... the power of community.

The convention will be inclusive as each delegate will have the floor to describe their organization, primary concerns, strategies and actions they propose. These strategies and actions will be part of further discussions. There will be time for deliberation and participation in break-out groups. Other activities include showing documentaries that support your cause at a separate theater for delegates and general public.

This is also a media opportunity as already we have received national coverage through our radio ads. The entire event will be simulcast globally through the internet as well as filmed. Come and be part of history.

Register: describe your organization, and number attending, email:  Paulnrg@aol.com
Collaborate: send your suggestions on agenda and events for the available eight hours.
Network with other activist groups and expand your influence.
Access the power of community that will bring needed change.

Events begin at 1 PM on July 4
Located at Independence Center, 6th and Market St., Philadelphia.
