The agenda will include building for April 9 and last minute details of the Speak out on Saturday, March 12.  The meeting had originally been scheduled for Monday 3/7, but the room was unavailable.  We need as many folks at this meeting as possible.
 
2. Fund Appeal: The printing costs for March 12 and for April 9  and cost of securing the bus for April 9 has cut deeply into PAW's finances. We have less than $200 on hand and a lot of expenses to meet. What you can do -- make a contribution to PAW and/or buy your bus tickets for April 9 in advance NOW.  Contribute online at http://phillyagainstwar.wordpress.com/donate/ or send a check made to PAW to PO Box 333, Bristol, PA 19007.   Thanks a lot! Even small contributions help.

From Cairo, Egypt to Madison, Wisconsin people are standing up for democracy and against cut backs and austerity. Working people are told every day that they have to “sacrifice” to speed the recovery of the US economy. The rich, however, are not asked to sacrifice but instead are given tax breaks and bailouts. We say this situation is unacceptable. We need jobs, education and health care, not more wars. We say bring the troops and the war dollars home now and rebuild the economy here.

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. It's 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.
