100+ Media Outlets Report on Sept. 24 Demonstrations

A few days ago, we made an urgent appeal asking for funds. We need to raise $50,000 as seed money for the September 24 mass mobilization. Many people have responded but we are not there yet. In the last few days we have received significant media coverage (see below) and we now have more than 3,300 endorsers. We ask you to make a generous donation now to help keep up the momentum. The expenses are great, but the commitment of all of us to build a mass antiwar movement can guarantee our success. To make a contribution through a secure server, where you can also find information on how to contribute by check, please click here.

Antiwar Demonstration Planned for Fall

Antiwar demonstrators announced plans yesterday to stage protests in Washington, Los Angeles and San Francisco in September.

The Act Now to Stop War and End Racism coalition said it expects to draw more than 100,000 protesters to the three cities in demonstrations Sept. 24.

ANSWER plans to "surround the White House with a sea of antiwar protesters," Brian Becker, the coalition's national coordinator, said at a news conference at the National Press Club.
