The main demands of the demonstration: NO WAR AGAINST IRAQ

Day of Action 26th of October as proposed by Int. ANSWER (in Danish)


26 October: national demonstration against US Iraq war threat, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

On Saturday 26 October, there will be a big national demonstration against the war, planned by George W. Bush against Iraq. Place: city hall, Coolsingel, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. People will gather at 1 p.m.; the demonstration will start at 2 p.m. The two main slogans are: No war against Iraq; and: Not one man, not one woman, not one cent for the New War.Saturday 26 October is an international day of action for the peacemovement. Then, there will also be big demonstrations elsewhere, like in Washington, DC in the US (see )

26 October is the first birthday of the infamous so called "Patriot Act" of the Bush administration in the VS. That act, under the pretext of "war against terrorism", gravely attacks civil rights, both in general and especially of (real or perceived) Muslims or Arabs. Also in Rotterdam, the struggle for peace will be linked to the struggle for civil rights, especially in The Netherlands, and for refugees. At the meeting, called for by the Committee Rotterdam against the "New War", there were many representatives of peace organizations in other cities; of Iraqi, Iranian, Afghan refugees; and others. There is also co-operation with the Dutch national platform against the "New War"; see The Rotterdam organizing committee of the demonstration can be reached at phone [in The Netherlands] (0)10-4620852 or
