*PROTEST FOCUS SHIFTS FROM CRAWFORD, TEXAS TO WASHINGTON D.C.
Thousands to Descend on Washington DC for Global Justice and Antiwar
Protests in September*
/Washington DC/ Building upon the momentum of Cindy Sheehans protests
in Crawford, Texas and a growing unrest about the war and corporate
profiteering in Iraq, thousands of anti-war, global justice, and other
activists will flock to Washington, DC from September 23-26 to send a
powerful and unambiguous message of resistance to the war-mongering Bush
Administration and its corporate cronies holding annual meetings for the
World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF). These four days will
comprise the largest demonstrations since last year's Republican
National Convention protests in New York City.
SeptemberACTION.org will serve as an information clearinghouse for all
the weekends activities. To encourage participation and planning for
various protest events, visitors to the website can give and receive
information through an unique interactive website interface.
"We want to invite people of all colors, cultures, faiths and political
beliefs to Washington DC from September 23 - 26 to bring the will of
people directly to those in power," said Jim MacDonald of the DC Antiwar
Network (DAWN). "SeptemberAction.org will provide the tools and
information people need to create opposition to the Bush
Administration's lies and policies as well as the global loan sharking
of the IMF/World Bank."
SeptemberACTION.org will also help facilitate the organization of
autonomous spokes-councils and consultas for the mobilization and invite
a diverse range of groups and individuals to provide input,
decision-making, and support for this effort.
The SeptemberACTION.org website (www.septemberAction.org
<http://www.septemberAction.org>) will also host ride and housing
boards, internet tools for mobilization working groups, media outreach
tools, and email lists that support the planning and implementation of
the weekends activities.
"The time has come to build unity and participation across this diverse
peace and justice community," said Morrigan Phillips of the Mobilization
for Global Justice. "We will help facilitate effective communication
between groups and empower people from all walks of life to participate
in these four days to their full conviction and ability."
/The SeptemberACTION Collective is a group of peace and justice
organizers from across the country working to empower people of all
colors, cultures, ages, faiths, and political beliefs to bring the will
of the people directly to those in power through a variety of
non-violent actions during the September 23 - 26 mobilizations. For more
