 CONTENTS
 
1. REBUILDING THE ANTIWAR MOVEMENT ‹ A sector of the U.S. peace movement
seems to be retiring from active opposition to America's wars now that the
Democrats control the White House and Congress. But on March 21 the first
nationally coordinated protests of the post-Bush period showed that our
movement is still there, struggling against the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan
and Gaza, and looking to get stronger.

3. MAKE MY FILIBUSTER ‹ The fear of a Republican filibuster causes the

one is paying four to eight time more in interest?
