There will be four sections to the meeting, each with opening statements by presenters and then an open mike to all in attendance to discuss each topic, before going on to the next, so that there will be four discussion sections.
1. Our priority is to stop the killing in Iraq. The principal way that can be done is by an immediate US ceasefire and withdrawal of the invasion forces. The presence of US troops is the main provocation to the violence there. This change of US policy can only be accomplished by an escalation of movement activism. Peace is in the hands of citizens because the Bush administration and the Democratic Party at this moment, with important exceptions, are both committed to continuing the fighting. This requires ratcheting up our resistence. This thesis will be opened to discussion by all.
2. What new forms of resistance and re-framing of more familiar forms of opposition can citizens undertake to turn our government around?
3. Where are the people in Marin on these issues? What do the activists, the faith community, students, labor, the anti-recruitment group and other sectors believe they can do to end the war?
4. Deciding on next steps.
