All Out April 9th in New York!
 
Philly Against War is one of the endorsing organizations building for a mass mobilization in New York City on April 9th. WE want an end to the US wars and occupations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. We call for spending  the money wasted on these wars to rebuild the economy at home. We need jobs at good wages, education and health care, not more wars and misery. Time to put an end to Islamophobia, government frame ups of Muslims and spying against activists in the US. and to protect the right to free speech and civil liberties for everyone.
 
Read the Call to Action for April 9th below.
 
GET ON THE BUS!  PAW is organizing a bus to New York for the April 9th march and rally. We have a whole range of activity planned to build for this mobilization. Bus tickets are $25 per seat.  Buy yours now! Your early purchase of a ticket helps us fund our activities.
 
What can you do?
 
Contribute: We rely on volunteer labor. No one at PAW gets a salary. We need funds to help build this march. We ask individuals and organizations to contribute what they can – even if it’s just a few bucks. Unlike the banks and the rich, PAW did not get a government bailout. We don’t get corporate or foundation grants.
 
It’s folks like yourself that make this organizing possible. You can donate online or by sending a check made to Philly Against War to PO BOX 333, Bristol, PA 19007.
 
We are also asking organizations and individuals to pre-pay for bus tickets. If organizations commit NOW to a block of tickets, then it makes paying for the bus so much easier.
 
Volunteer: Sign up for the outreach and visibility committee. Or join us out in the streets as we petition to Bring the War Dollars Home and let the community know about April 9. To volunteer, contact phillyagainstwar@gmail.com 
 
Come to our next meeting - for details contact phillyagainstwar@gmail.com  or 267.994.9448.
 
Endorse:  Ask your Church, Mosque, community organization, student group or union to endorse the April 9th March and Rally.
When they do, urge them to contribute to the PAW mobilization fund.
  
 
Call to Action

 April 9, 2011

New York & San Francisco from the United National Antiwar Committee


WHO ARE THE WARMAKERS?  

 THEY are the government, corporate, and financial powers that wage war, ravage the environment and the economy and trample on our democratic rights and liberties.

 WHO ARE THE PEACEMAKERS?

 WE are the vast majority of humanity who want peace, a healthy planet and a society that prioritizes human needs, democracy and civil liberties for all.

 The Warmakers spend trillions of dollars yearly on endless wars in pursuit of global domination and profit while murdering millions of innocent people, installing corrupt and hated governments and funding occupations that displace millions from their homelands – trampling on the right of oppressed people to self-determination.

 THEY send our youth – victims of the economic draft – to fight over the very fossil fuels whose unrestrained use threatens the future of the planet while corrupt and virtually unregulated oil giants dump billions of gallons of death into our rivers and oceans.

 THEY wage a fake “war on terrorism” at home – the new McCarthyism – that promotes racism and Islamophobia aimed at destroying civil liberties and democratic rights.

 THEY grant repeated and untold trillions in bailouts to banks, corporations and financial institutions while breaking unions, robbing pensions, destroying jobs, foreclosing homes, de-funding education and vital social services and are once again threatening Social Security and Medicare.

 THEY offer no solutions to the current crises other than more of the same.

 THE PEACEMAKERS DEMAND a better world. Only a massive, united, inclusive and independent movement has the power to bring it into being.

 WE DEMAND Bring U.S. Troops, Mercenaries and War Contractors Home Now: Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan! End the sanctions and stop the threats of war against the people of Iran, North Korea and Yemen. No to war and plunder of the people of Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa! End U.S. Aid to Israel! End U.S. Support to the Israeli Occupation of Palestine and the Siege of Gaza!

 WE DEMAND trillions for jobs, education, social services, an end to all foreclosures, quality single-payer healthcare for all, a massive conversion to sustainable and planet-saving energy systems and public transportation and reparations to the victims of U.S. terror at home and abroad.

 WE DEMAND an end to FBI raids on antiwar, social justice, and international solidarity activists, an end to the racist persecution and prosecutions that ravage Muslim communities, an end to police terror in Black, Latino and Native American communities, full rights and legality for immigrants and an end to all efforts to repress and punish Wikileaks and its contributors and founders.

 WE DEMAND the immediate end to torture, rendition, secret trials, drone bombings and death squads.

 WE ARE DEDICATED  TO A WORLD OF PEACE AND JUSTICE.

 All Out April 9, 2011
