Direct Action to Stop the War
Direct Action to Stop the War (San Francisco Bay Area) call on other cities to organize widespread noncooperation; Instead of going to work or school, they call on everyone to resist this war
by particpating in or supporting mass nonviolent direct action, particularly focussed on the corporations, financial districts and other institutions involved in the war.
In our collective efforts to build a mass movement of principled non-violent resistance to
the U.S.-led war on Iraq, Direct Action to Stop the War (San Francisco/Bay Area) is calling a National Day of Direct Action
and Civil Disobedience to Stop the War at Home and Abroad.

We call upon all cities, organizations, and individuals to organize
widespread non-cooperation focussing on: Federal and Government buildings, Oil corporations, Arms manufacturers and transportation systems. On Monday April 7th, instead of going
to work or school, sustain the resistance to this war by participating in or supporting mass nonviolent direct action in any way possible.

Our Goals:

1) If the government and corporations won?t stop the war, we'll shut down the warmakers! We will raise the economic, social and political costs of waging this war, and continue to stop business as usual until the war stops. We are publicly declaring and organizing mass nonviolent direct action now with the express intention of stopping this war against Iraq and future wars.

2) Assert our power to transform our city from profits, oil and
war to resistance and life! We will create an open, welcoming, inspiring space that gives voice to the anti-war majority as an assertion of real democracy.

3) Uproot the system behind the war (and behind the war at home racism, poverty); help catalyze mass movements to challenge corporate and government power and create socially just, directly democratic, ecological, peaceful alternatives.
