This is not about "fetishes". It is about useless divisions. Division in 
the face of the enemy is not a good thing. Both the UFPJ and ANSWER are for 
getting out of Iraq. Whatever differences they have over other questions 
should not get in the way of a show of unity one or two days a year. It 
would be much better for the movement to have a single larger demo than two 
smaller demos for other reasons. The left is trying to present itself as an 
alternative to the madness of ruling class politics. We don't look very 
effective when we can't come to terms around the need to meet at site a and 
march to site b under the banner of immediate withdrawal from Iraq.
