PROTEST TONIGHT (2-16) TO STOP U.S. BOMBING OF IRAQ!

EMERGENCY! PROTEST TONIGHT TO STOP U.S. BOMBING OF IRAQ!
5:00 PM, Powell & Market, San Francisco Friday, February 16.

U.S. and British war planes today bombed Iraq, just outside the
capital of Baghdad. This attack is an escalation of the U.S. war on
the Iraqi people carried out with sanctions and bombings for over 10
years. According to CNN, this is the first attack on Baghdad since
Feb. 24, 1999.

This attack comes at a time when the issue of the continuing
genocidal sanctions has developed into a crisis for the incoming Bush
administration. Last week, the New York Times for the first time
proposed a relaxation of the sanctions. This unprovoked attack is an
attempt to galvanize public opinion in the U.S. and around the world
to maintain the murderous sanctions and step up the war against the
Iraqi people.

Participate in an emergency demonstration tonight, Friday Feb. 16 at
5:00 at Powell & Market Streets in San Francisco. This site has been
a gathering spot for emergency protests since the beginning of the
Gulf war 10 years ago.
