Adam and Jeremy want Bush to pursue Peace
If the city officials of New York really were trying to stop people from
marching against war on Iraq by refusing to issue a permit, and thought
having U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones rule against allowing a march
permit to be issued would stop marchers, they failed miserably. With figures
ranging from a 100,000 guesstimate from an NYPD spokesperson, to attendee
estimates of around 750,000, people young and old, of myriad nationalities,
races and creeds, filled the streets of mid-town Manhattan today with a
veritable carnival of civil disobedience for peace. Ignoring the
court-ordered ban on marching, protestors exercised their Constitutional
right to public protest, marching, telling Bush and the world in firm, loud
voices that not all US citizens are blindly buying into any proposed
pre-emptive strike and a subsequent war against Iraq, and will not be cowed
into silence.

> For over a year our country has been at war with a terrorist foe that

> which hostile agency or state to take on, and at which point in time.
> There have been critics of the Administration's war policy from both
> the
> Democrat and Republican side of the aisle. But these critics share a
> common concern for the defense of this country, and in the end they
> support our government and our nation against its foes.
> Not so the other opposition to the war, which is a radical movement
> with
> Marxist roots, whose origins go back to the Vietnam War and whose
> political base is American universities. This opposition to the war
> on
> terror manifested itself within weeks of 9/11 with aim of opposing an
> American military response to the al-Qaeda attacks. Its agendas are
> not
> "pacifist" and are not inspired by dissatisfaction with any
> particular
> American war or policy, but with the American system itself. It is a
> movement which cannot be appeased and which is willing to collaborate
> with America's enemies.
> Every major "anti-war" demonstration to date, including the
> demonstrations on the Capitol Mall in October and January has been
> organized and controlled by a self-styled Communist group called the
> Workers World Party, and its front "International A.N.S.W.E.R." The
> figurehead of this organization is former Attorney General Ramsey
> Clark
> and its organizer is Brian Becker, a member of the secretariat of the

> regime and along with its figurehead has supported the North
> Vietnamese
> torturers of American POWS, the Ayatollah Khomeni regime in Iran,
> Slobodan Milosevic and Saddam Hussein.
> At the Mall, the speakers - all selected by the Workers World Party -
> denounced America as an imperialist aggressor and "the axis of evil,"
> and called for "regime change" and "revolution" in the United States.
> An
