    A New Movement for 2005 - Make Bush's inaugaration on January 20th an anti war day.

    If only the US and British government would spend the kind of money on aid they spend on war!

    Bush and Blair are in terrible trouble over Iraq. Resistance is growing and, if it takes place at all, the election in Iraq looks like being a farce. In the US splits are emerging in the establishment over the war. A series of right wingers including Trent Lott and John McCain have been calling for US troops to get out.

    Here, opinion polls against the war are at their highest ever- between 55-70% against - compared to an average of 45% around Febuary 15th 2002. Millions who reluctantly supported the war are now feeling deceived and betrayed by Blair.

    Our job is to get in touch with those people to build a massive demo on March 19 and an effective day of disobedience on Febuary 15.

    We must make sure no-one misses the demo because they didn't hear about March 19. (We received a number of calls after the ESF demo from people who didn’t know it was on and were angry they missed it)

    We are calling on all groups to start mobilising right away.

    January 20, the day of Bush's inaugaration, will be an Outreach day for the movement.

    We ask every group to organise visits to local workplaces, trade unions, mosques, church groups, community centres, or just go door to door down your street on that day. The aim is to show that we don’t accept Bush or his policies, and to begin to build for local events on February 15.

  2. Sounds very interesting. If you could get more info up that would be cool. I could try and get an anti-bush/Anti war concert at college or my old school or somethin...

    It's down to you as individuals to raise awareness for the cause as you see fit. You create the info;)
