- 11:30a Union Sq: Artistsí performance/action - On the theme: OUR GRIEF IS NOT A CRY FOR WAR. You are invited to participate. We are meeting at 11:30 in front of
Barnes and Noble at the north end of Union Square. Everyone should come dressed in black with a dust mask (if you can bring a dust mask, great, if not, we'll have some extras). We will move together at noon to the south plaza where we will hold placards with the "Our Grief is Not a Cry for War" slogans in silence for one hour. All people who work in the arts are welcome to take part, and help scheme on other projects. We are about creating art which will break through this atmosphere of war,

TELL BUSH: NO TO RACISM AND WAR - A Message from the International Action Center - On September 29 we had planned to demonstrate against the Bush administrationís reactionary foreign and domestic policy and the IMF and World Bank. In light of the current crisis, with its tragic consequences for so many thousands of people, we have refocused the call for our demonstration to address the immediate danger posed by racism and the grave threat of a new war.
