WHY NOT pester these DSEi-related people by EMAIL?

14-07-2003 15:11

Sept 6th - 12th will see a week of action against Europe's largest arms fair, the DSEi.

WHY NOT give the people organising the DSEi a bit of hassle. They're obviously finding it a little too easy to sleep at nights. Write them a well thought out balanced letter arguing your case. Or ask awkward questions. Or whatever you feel is appropriate. Needless to say I wouldn't advocate anyone being at all unpleasant to these thoroughly decent and honorable members of society.

As an example here are my letters which I wrote. They're a bit crap but it doesn't matter...

Manchester Protests Against the West Bank Wall

13-07-2003 20:06

A cardboard "West Bank Wall" was build in Manchester to graphically symbolise and illustrate what is happening in occupied Palestine.

On 12th July 2003, the Palestinian solidarity movement in Manchester, UK mounted a protest against the West Bank Wall which the Israeli's are building. The wall is an attempt to contain the Palestinian resistance.

To graphically illustrate the monstrous nature of this crime, a wall made from cardboard boxes was built outside Manchester Town Hall. The wall was decorated with posters, photographs and painted slogans.

A rally was held in front of the wall and finally the cardboard was demolished by the protestors to provide a visual representation of what needs to be done with the real West Bank Wall.

July 2003: Please come to Genoa again

13-07-2003 13:48

They wanted to exploit the july 2001 in Genoa to display power, arrogance, oppression, violence and death. They have tried to hide the urge for justice and solidarity, the urge, which a huge number of people has carried in public of the world, their programs and proposals, to let the hope for a better world become concrete. This is today even more necessary than ever, in the face of the wars, the growing poverty and the savagery in the international relationships.
