Dear supporter of the ANSWER Coalition,

Transportation centers have been created in numerous cities to bring people by bus, van and car caravan to to the White House on Saturday, July 9, at noon to demand: Stop Bombing Libya.

The Washington, D.C., July 9 protest is the next step of opposition following the hugely successful Cynthia McKinney Eyewitness Libya nationwide speaking tour.

We are required to make full payment for buses tomorrow. Each bus from New York City costs $1,900, and each bus from Pittsburgh costs $2,100. Please make an urgently needed tax deductible donation today to help build the July 9 protest.

This is an illegal war. The United States and other NATO powers are dropping massive bombs and missiles in an effort to carry out regime change in the country that possesses the largest oil reserves in Africa and the ninth largest in the world.

The people of the United States oppose the bombing of Libya by a 2-to-1 margin. But we must act now to show this opposition

At the moment, the government tells us the country is so broke that tens of thousands of teachers and nurses have to be fired, yet there is again limitless funds for another war.

The civil war that commenced in February in Libya provided a perfect pretext for the United States, Britain and France to use overwhelming military power to overthrow the government. Their goal is not more democracy and freedom, or to “protect civilians.” These powers have predatory commercial and military interests in the region that contains two thirds of the world’s known oil reserves.

Humanitarian intervention is just an empty slogan masking the imperial character of the war.

Civilians are being killed by the U.S./NATO bombing. The country’s infrastructure is being destroyed and will undoubtedly be source of lucrative reconstruction contracts for Halliburton, Exxon/Mobil, and other western corporations and banks.

Join us on July 9 to say Stop Bombing Libya, End the Occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq!
