PROTEST BUSH SPEAKING AT UNITED NATIONS
September 12, Thursday, 9:00 am to 1:30 pm, New York City


Protest at UN where President Bush is speaking that morning before the General Assembly to advocate his plans to wage war against Iraq.  Permitted protest area at Dag Hammarskjold Park in Manhattan at 47th Street and First Avenue.  Due to anticipated large crowds and the addition of many additional groups, 47th Street will be blocked off from traffic and will be our designated protest area.  Enter from Second Avenue.  Start gathering at 9:00 am.  Speakers from 9:30 am to 12:00 noon.

Protest the policies of the unelected President, including his disregard for the environment, preference for corporate interests, his poor record on women's issues and civil rights, and his advocating military aggression against Iraq. We must show Bush and the leaders of the World that the American people are not in favor of a reckless, preemptive military campaign in Iraq which will likely lead to a powder keg of the entire Middle East region.
