NATIONAL CONFERENCE
AGAINST WAR, COLONIAL OCCUPATION
& IMPERIALISM

MAY 17-18
New York City

Activists and organizers will be traveling from across the
East Coast, Midwest, South and West Coast to attend the
May 17-18 National Conference Against War, Colonial
Occupation & Imperialism. (The date has been changed from
what was announced at the April 12 demonstration -- please
note new date.)

This is an extremely important meeting for organizers and
activists. It will include analysis, assessment,
evaluation and strategizing, both in workshops and in full
plenary sessions. This will be the first opportunity for
the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition and its affiliate organizers to
meet since our conference that was held in New York City a
year ago (June 1, 2002). Activists and organizers with the
A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition have been at the forefront of the
struggle against the Bush administration's
ultra-militaristic foreign policy as well as its assault
on civil rights and civil liberties at home.

The invasion and occupation of Iraq has created a U.S.
military dictatorship in a country that possesses 10
percent of the world's oil supply. This occupation is
meeting widespread resistance throughout Iraq.

A.N.S.W.E.R. and others around the country and the world
have been at the center of a new worldwide movement
against endless war and imperialist conquest. This global
movement showed its power even after the seizure of
Baghdad when demonstrations took place on April 12 in over
60 countries in response to a call issued by A.N.S.W.E.R.
and other international coalitions.

Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld are aggressively pursuing a
design for World Empire. We believe they will fail not
because some other force possesses superior military power
to stop them, but instead because of the worldwide
resistance that will intensify in the months and years to
come.

The purpose of the upcoming May 17-18 conference is to
provide the evaluation, analysis, political program and
action plan for this coming struggle.
