UFPJ – Joins Moratorium
Please forward widely!
The Iraq Moratorium is about to begin. Initiated by antiwar activists from several groups
around the country, it calls for local, decentralized, personal action or statements against
the ongoing war and occupation of Iraq on the 3rd Friday of every month. This Friday,
Sept. 21st, is the first of what promises to be a growing movement in the coming months.
United for Peace and Justice is enthusiastically supporting this effort. The delegates at
our National Assembly a few months ago agreed: It is critically important to offer as many
opportunities for a wide range of people to express their opposition to this horrendous,
The idea is simple: Everyone, wherever you are, should try to do something that publicly
says, "I am against this war -- and I want it to end now!"
The Iraq Moratorium is something everyone can get involved with, either as an individual
or as part of a group. Here are just a few ideas for what you can do:
1) Wear an antiwar button or sticker to work or school.
2) Wear a black armband to let people know you mourn the overwhelming loss of life in
3) Hang an antiwar sign in your window, or put one on your lawn.
4) Call a local radio talk show and explain why you want this war to end.
5) Today, or tomorrow, write a letter to the editor of a local newspaper and let people
know about the Iraq Moratorium and how they can get involved.
6) With just a few people, you can make a large antiwar sign or banner and hang it from a
busy overpass where people traveling to or from work will see it, or from some other highly
local federal building, or the office of your senator or representative in Congress.
8) Call the Washington, DC, offices of your senators and your representative.
For more information about the Iraq Moratorium, visit: www.iraqmoratorium.org.
And remember, if you are planning anything that others are welcome to join, please be
sure to post it on UFPJ's online calendar.
We encourage each of you getting this message to do something as part of the first day
of the Iraq Moratorium this Friday, Sept. 21st! And don't forget: United for Peace and
Justice has initiated a call for a massive national mobilization against the war on Saturday,
October 27th. This mobilization will be different from others -- instead if everyone going to
Washington, DC, there will be 11 regional actions spread out across the country. In the
coming weeks we will be sending you more details, and we encourage you to check www.
oct27.org for updates.
Save the date! Saturday, October 27th
National Mobilization to End the Iraq War!
11 Massive Demonstrations for Peace!

IS THIS WHAT YOU ARE THINKING?
I wish I had the answers. I wish I could save the world. Is that what we all are thinking?
We have to fight, fight the anger. Are you searching for answers? Are the answers right
in front of us? When the time comes, we have to know how to be nonviolent! When the
next terrorist strike comes, we will be angry. We have to practice NONVIOLENCE.
