Honor the Dead
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the thousands of innocent men, women
and
children who lost their lives in Tuesday's attacks, and to the millions
of
people who lost a friend, relative or loved one. But we must not
become
paralyzed by this grief. Even as the terrible death toll rises,
Congress is
giving President Bush extraordinary powers to launch a war that will no
doubt
lead to even more loss of innocent life. Meanwhile, Arab Americans,
Muslims,
and people of Middle Eastern backgrounds are facing a wave of violent
hate
crimes, including right here in the Bay Area.

Now is the time to stand up for real justice, not blind military
vengeance,
and to begin the difficult task of organizing an anti-war movement even
before the bombs begin dropping and to send a message loud and clear
that we
will oppose any form of racist scapegoating or attacks on civil
liberties.

Come participate in this crucial town hall meeting. All individuals
are
encouraged to bring your ideas, your questions, your energy and your
resolve.
All organizations are encouraged to bring educational literature and
proposals for or information about events. After brief remarks form
speakers and some questions and answers, we will get down to work to
start
planning events to stand up against hate and war.
