22 Reproductive Rights Mobilization

Along the
same line….

National Organization for Women is declaring a state of emergency to
save women’s rights to self-determination and reproductive freedom. NOW
calling on activists everywhere to take part in a national campaign which

we will kick off with an Emergency Action for Women’s Lives in Washington,

D.C., on Sunday, April 22. The Emergency Action for Women’s Lives will

target the U.S. Senate to protect our rights and to stop the packing of
U.S. Supreme Court with antiabortion rights nominees. The Action will
two weeks of in-state lobbying during the Senate’s spring break from April

7 through 22. It will include virtual lobbying to inundate Senators with

e-mails when they return to the nation’s capital."

All clubs
are URGED to mobilize for this. Reach out to other organizations.
Reach out to labor to build for this demonstration.

April 22
is also Earth Day. The earth’s rights and women’s rights go hand
in hand. All the more reason to not let this day pass without making your


Pass resolutions
in your organizations and unions. It is of vital
importance that we have a MASSIVE turnout as this is the first anti-Bush

mobilization since the inauguration.

Start planning your local action or trip to D.C. now! See the Website
for more info.

March arose as a result of the conduct and results of election 2000
which has led to the emergence of a growing Pro-Democracy movement. Our

platform calls for a Voters’ Bill of Rights for critically-needed
reforms…" see the website for the platform!

Stop the
FTAA Deal!


The Free
Trade Area of Americas (FTAA) is the next step in globalizing
corporate greed, not human need. The FTAA is an international business
that will increase corporate power while endangering the lives of the

millions of people who stand in the way of this money making scheme.
Initiated in 1994 by the 34 countries of North and South America (excluding

Cuba), the FTAA would create the world’s largest free market zone –
affecting 650 million people and trillion in capital. Governmental
talks have been accompanied by the business sector every step of the way

and their discussions of the dirty deal have been held behind closed doors,

under a veil of secrecy.

To oppose
the FTAA meeting of the Organization of American States in Quebec
City, April 20-22 2001, participate in LOCAL actions in your area, click

LOCAL actions link

See National
Chair Sam Webb’s report
on strategy and tactics

a deeply cynical maneuver, President Bush is citing California’s
short-term energy crisis in an effort to push through approval of long-term

oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, one of the nation’s

most important and fragile wildlife breeding zones. It is up to everyone

who cares about our environment to step forward and take action on this

crucial issue.

your senators
they must protect this national treasure!
