THE WORLD UNITES FOR APRIL 12 - International Day of Action


THE WORLD UNITES FOR APRIL 12 International Day of Action On April 12 -- in addition to the National March on Washington DC and joint actions in San Francisco and Los Angeles -- massive and coordinated demonstrations will take place around the world, in the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe. In England, the Stop the War Coalition UK -- the group that organized over 1.5 million people to demonstrate in London on February 15 -- will hold their next national demonstration on April 12. See http://www.stopwar.org.uk for more information. In past months, massive demonstrations on January 18 and February 15- 16 were the decisive factor in changing the political climate contributing to the political isolation of George W. Bush, Tony Blair and their war plans. There have been many other huge demonstrations in the United States and around the world on October 26, March 15 and March 22. The whole world is now taking to the streets in almost daily protests. April 12 will be another opportunity for a coming together in vast numbers to show the continuing and growing power of the anti-war movement. Stop the War Coalition UK, A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition and German anti-war organizers have put out a joint call to rally international participation on April 12. It reads in part: "It is becoming clear to millions that this is not a war for Iraqi liberation but a bloody military invasion. ... further coordinated international action can make it difficult for [Bush and Blair] to continue the carnage. ... We call on the anti-war movements to organize the next day of global capital city protests on April 12." Protests are already scheduled for Brazil, Mexico, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, South Korea, the Philippines, Italy and Sweden, in addition to England, Germany and the U.S. Other protests are currently in the planning stages and will be announced soon.
