Dear Friends,

We are requesting that you reconsider your plans
and not come naked to the March 19 protest
at the Civic Center
sponsored by the ANSWER Coalition.

People from many communities who are participating
will be greatly offended.
We hope that you respect these communities
and join the 5 pm rally clothed.

Also, due to the sensationalist bent of much of the corporate media,
many of them may seek to
diminish the importance of the issue
by focusing on the nudity angle,
rather than the war and its horrific cost.


We ask that if you choose to hold a nude protest action
that you do it elsewhere,
and not at our demonstration
marking the fifth anniversary of the Iraq invasion..

Sincerely,

ANSWER Coalition
