Not In Our Name press release
NION organized the nationwide Oct 6 demonstrations.
The government has stepped up its moves toward war on Iraq while domestic spying has taken a giant leap with the new “Total Information Awareness,” a program recently unveiled by the Defense Department. It is aimed at amassing computerized dossiers on the private lives of millions of U.S. citizens.
Accordingly, we are stepping up the publication of the Not In Our Name Statement of Conscience and Resistance.
In the next few weeks, our statement will be published in the largest Spanish-language daily newspaper in the country, La Opinion in LA, two of the major African-American newspapers (the Chicago Defender and the Amsterdam News in NYC), The Nation, the New York Review of Books, and the Seattle Times and Post-Intelligencer.
Please help make all this happen by sending your contribution to Not In Our Name, 158 Church Street, PMB 9, New York, NY 10007, or by contributing by credit card at our web site www.nion.us.
Finally, December 10th is ‘International Human Rights Day’. We urge you to join in antiwar actions all over the country that day. Our website (www.nion.us) can direct you.
