- PLEASE FORWARD -

STOP RACISM & IMPERIALIST WAR!
U.S. NAVY OUT OF VIEQUES & ALL OF PUERTO RICO!
U.S. MILITARY OUT OF THE PHILIPPINES!
U.S. HANDS OFF THE PEOPLE'S DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF KOREA! SELF-DETERMINATION
FOR ALL ASIAN PEOPLES!

The Vieques Support Campaign urges everyone to support the event advertised
on this e-mail message shown below. The more than a century of the Puerto
Rican experience under U.S. control, which began with military invasion,
verifies what are the motives of U.S. rulers who are now sounding the call
for all out war: outright colonial domination.

The war on Iraq is but a stepping stone for U.S. war ambitions throughout
the world. From Iraq to the Philippines & Korea - From Puerto Rico to the
poor and oppressed communities of the U.S. - the people united can never be
defeated!

Manhattan, New York City


While U.S./British armed forces are assembling a massive force to invade and
"liberate" Iraq, the Pentagon is quietly opening a "second front" in the
Pacific. This community forum will discuss the U.S.'s recent war moves in
East Asia: At the same time as 3,000 heavily armed Special Forces and
Marines are landing in the southern Philippines for counter-insurgency
operations, a large force of U.S. warships, planes and weapons of mass
destruction are massing to threaten the People's Democratic Republic of
Korea (north Korea).

This forum will explore American claims that it is exporting "democracy"
abroad, and contrast these claims to the lived reality of decades of U.S.
military occupation and domination. The vibrant resistance struggles waged
by the Korean and Filipino peoples - past and present day - will be
highlighted.

We hope that participants will emerge from this forum with a greater
understanding of these popular struggles in Korea and the Philippines, and
how they are connected to other liberation struggles around the world. In
addition, we will discuss ways that people in NYC can get more involved in
people-to-people solidarity work.

Presenters will include past participants of Korea Exposure and Education
Program (KEEP), sponsored by Nodutdol (NYC) and Mindullae (L.A.). Members of
NISPOP's Reality Tour and the International Solidarity Mission to the
Southern Philippines (ISM) in the summer of 2002 will also present at this
forum.

Performances will be in English, Korean, and Tagalog.
There will be a question & answer session afterwards.

This event is free to the public. Donations welcomed.
Light Korean and Filipino refreshments will be served afterwards.

This event is part of 1953-2003 Armistice to Peace Treaty in Korea campaign
and the Justice not War in the Philippines campaign. It is a joint
production of the Network in Solidarity with the People of the Philippines
(www.nispop.org) and Nodutdol for Korean Community Development
(www.nodutdol.com).

This event is free to the public. Donations welcome. Light Korean and
Filipino refreshments will be served afterwards. We invite all groups and
organizations to endorse this event.
