DIRECT ACTION TO STOP THE WAR

Warren Langley, a retired Lt. Colonel in the air force and the former President and Chief Operating Officer of the Pacific Stock Exchange explained his decision to take non-violent direct action:
"We have to take action now and stop this war before its too late. Non-violent civil disobedience has worked in other struggles for justice, now we must use it to prevent a US attack on Iraq."

Father Louis Vitalie: "The US government is about to engage in a devastating attack that will kill hundreds of thousands of innocent people in Iraq. We cannot remain silent in the face of this crisis. We hope that by disrupting business as usual - like stock trading and financial speculation - people will recognize the urgency of this crisis and join us in peaceful mass non-cooperation to stop the US attack on Iraq."

Lynn MacMichael, a Bay area resident who recently returned from 28 days in Iraq said "I've seen first-hand the destruction in Iraq from the Gulf War and the last 12 years of bombing. 250 people - mainly children - continue to die every day from the sanctions against Iraq. I've heard first hand from people in Iraq that told me - please go back to the U.S and ask your government not to bomb us. I had an old woman grab my hand and say please let us live. We must take action now to stop this human and environmental catastrophe. We can stop this war!"
