On March 19, 2008 - the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq - Direct Action to Stop the War (http://www.actagainstwar.net) will be organizing a day of decentralized, multiple-target direct action against government offices and war profiteers in downtown San Francisco. We have created a list (see the website) of San Francisco offices of federal agencies, corporations with military contracts or contracts in Iraq, politicians who have failed to stop the war, and foreign embassies of countries linked to the war in Iraq. We are focusing primarily on corporations with military or Iraqi contracts, because we want to focus attention on the prominent role played by war-profiteering corporations in the U.S. occupation of Iraq. We will take direct action on March 19th against as many of these locations as possible, in order to send a clear message to the economic and political elites that control this country: No business as usual until all U.S. troops are withdrawn from Iraq!
**How you can plug into the March 19th San Francisco Day of Direct Action:**
We’re asking that you:
1. Get together with a group of your friends, and plan a direct action against a government or corporate office on March 19th.
2. If doing a direct action isn’t your cup of tea, there are many, many other vital roles you can play in this action. Please come to our next organizing meeting and plug in.
3. If helping organize this action isn’t something you have time for, we’re asking that you take the day off work or school on March 19th, and meet up with us at Market & Sansome starting at 7:30am. Snake marches will be leaving Market & Sansome throughout the day, and going on "tours of shame" of the different war profiteers in downtown SF (and supporting the direct actions, which will be ongoing throughout the day). Please come out, and invite your friends!
4. Come to the next March 19th working group meeting. This is a meeting for folks who are interested in planning the action, coordinating the snake marches, and helping out with other logistical needs.
Of course, we’re here to support you in any way we can. Email us at dasw.march19th [at] gmail.com if you need any specific support, or have any questions.
