COUNTER TERROR
2005
BUILD JUSTICE

A International Month Of Peace Action 19 March-15 April 2005

 

How To Participate

Some Possible Actions

JNV and Voices in the Wilderness US hope that there will be a coordinated event during the month of action, perhaps in London and New York. However, the emphasis of the month of action is decentralized, built up out of local and regional events.

 

Different groups will choose different themes and different forms of action. It may be effective, however, if there are some events which are universal.

 

It may be useful, then, to suggest that each participating group could agree to hold at least one of the following events during the month, whether or not they organise or participate in another activity.

 

A) Stall (there will be 'Counter Terror: Build Justice' leaflets, posters and other materials available for the Month of Peace Action; and/or
B) Die-in (there will be a briefing setting out some suggestions for carrying out an effective die-in); and/or
C) Public Meeting/Debate about the 'war on terror' (there will be a speakers list, and a set of videos which can be bought or borrowed)

 

It would be very helpful for us in compiling a list of activities, if your group decides to sign the statement, and to sponsor 'Counter Terror: Build Justice', if at the same time you could also commit yourself to at least one of these minimum activities, and to choose a target date on which you will carry it out.
