Subject: [Announcements] FW: Declaration of Peace: Day 5

Friends and Supporters of the Global Call Iraq Campaign,

Thank you for your continued efforts to resist Empire and the violence that it breeds, particularly in regards to the US occupation of Iraq.  

We have been remiss in sending out an update to all of you all around the world as most of us on the Global Call Iraq Coordinating Committee have been extremely busy helping to organize the Declaration of Peace Campaign here in the United States –  The Declaration of Peace is a campaign that comprises over 500 organizations around the country, with solidarity support from several locations outside of the US, including Italy, France and Australia.  Since we agreed to help organize this campaign in April, we have seen this effort as fully in line with and a natural outcropping of our efforts with Global Call Iraq.  Therefore, we are grateful to continue to join with all of you around the world as we engage in a week of nonviolent resistance to demand an end to the unjust and illegal occupation of Iraq.

We are half way through the week of actions associated with the Declaration of Peace and you can read the latest update below and please visit the website for photos, videos and more reports on nonviolent actions and resistance

Thank you for your continued solidarity and support.

For justice,

Danny Malec

Are you ready to declare peace?

Another Reason to Declare Peace:
Spy Agencies Say Iraq War Worsens Terrorism Threat <>
The Bush administration claims the US occupation of Iraq is combating the threat of terrorism.  Sixteen US government spy agencies have drawn the conclusion that the war, in fact, increases this threat.  Let's bring this report to the attention of our members of Congress this week as we call on them to legislate a concrete and rapid plan to end the US occupation!
