NEXT STEP IN THE STRUGGLE AGAINST RACISM AND WAR!

International A.N.S.W.E.R. calls for an
International Day Against Racism & War
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27

cities across the U.S. and around the world

To continue the momentum from the September 29 National Marches in Washington DC and San Fracisco and the hundreds of emergency response protests that took place around the country, International A.N.S.W.E.R. has called for Saturday, October 27 to be an internationally-coordinated day of action against racism and war. Rallies, marches, teach-ins and other actions will take place in cities around the U.S.and internationally.

On September 29, many people who drove as long as 24 hours to come to Washington DC reported on the tremendous response they had found to organizing in the last weeks. In some cities, the recent organizing against racism and war had produced the largest protests and meetings to take place for literally decades.

Activists traveled from around the country to come to DC for September 29 because standing among 25,000 others gave them inspiration to continue to organize in their cities around the country. This internatinally-coordinated day of action offers that same opportunity. For every city where hundreds or thousnds march against the war, they can feel the strength of the anti-war movement around the country by knowing that they represent tens of thousands of people who are in motion against this war.

Actions are already planned around the country. In New York City, for example, organizers are planning a “March for Truth” beginning at the New York Times building. The march will be followed by a teach-in. In Washington DC, a rally is planned at the White House and in San Fracisco there will
be a major teach-in.

Plan an action in your city on Saturday, October 27.
