 I received this e-mail today.  In New York, the December 10 actions will
also be helping to build support for the New York area-wide protest to be
held in uptown New York on Saturday, December 14.

 The following email announcement was put together by the UFP Dec. 10
working
 group to let local groups and individuals know about the call for a
national
 anti-war day of action on Dec. 10. Please spread the word with your members
 and affiliate groups. You can either forward this email or write something
 that fits more with the culture of your organization.

 Thank you!

 TAKE ACTION NOW TO STOP THE WAR ON IRAQ!
 Call for local, decentralized actions on December 10th!

 United For Peace, an emerging national campaign working to stop the war on
 Iraq, is coordinating a day of local actions on Tuesday, December 10th,
 International Human Rights Day.

 Hundreds of communities around the country will organize events on this day
 and United For Peace will publicize them as a national day of action.

 We want you to be involved in this effort! UNITE FOR PEACE AND SAY NO TO
 WAR!!!

 Read on for suggestions about what you can do in your community. For more
 information about the United For Peace Campaign contact 202-862-9740 x3038
 or 415-255-7296 x311.

 Please post your events to www.unitedforpeace.org!

 HERE ARE SOME IDEAS FOR WHAT YOU CAN DO:

 *TALK to friends, neighbors and colleagues about what war will mean for
 people in both the Unite States and Iraq.

 *ORGANIZE anti-war rallies at the offices of Congress members who supported
 the war resolution, military bases, or military recruitment centers.

 *BUILD a campaign to get your local city council, student government,
union,
 or other civic body to pass a resolution against the war. To find out more
 about this kind of community organizing effort go to
www.citiesforpeace.org.

 *EDUCATE your community by holding teach-ins at high schools and colleges
on
 U.S. - Iraq relations or on the realities of war.

 *DEMONSTRATE your opposition to war by wearing a blue and white ribbon or
 armband.

 *TAKE ACTION by joining a nationally coordinated campaign of non-violent
 civil disobedience with the Iraq Pledge of Resistance. For more information
 contact 301-589-2355 or pledgecoordinator at starpower.net  or see
 www.peacepledge.org/resist.

 *GIVE out information and anti-war flyers. A downloadable anti-war flyer
 (³Top Ten Reasons Not to Invade Iraq²) will soon be available at
 www.unitedforpeace.org.

 *COMMIT yourself to overnight peace vigils or peace encampments in front of
 local federal office buildings.

 *CHALLENGE war propaganda by putting a sign in your window or on your door.

 *CREATE actions that highlight the role of U.S. oil companies and the U.S.
 Oil addiction as driving forces behind the proposed war on Iraq. To join
 with students who plan to protest at gas stations contact STARC at
 nknewkirk at yahoo.com.

 *MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD! Phone or fax blast the White House and tell them NO
 WAR ON IRAQ!!!

 Together we can stop this war before it starts - seize the moment
