1. The next PAW
Meeting will be this coming Thursday (3/10/11) at the
Friends Center, Rm 21, at 6:30 PM. 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.
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.

Saturday March 12, 1 -4:30 PM
Friends Center, 15th and Cherry, Philadelphia
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.
Sponsored by PAW and the Central
Philadelphia Monthly Meeting
Join the more than 500 endorsing
organizations in voicing your opposition to the US wars and
occupations. We say; Bring the War Dollars Home!
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.
