Hei alle gamle og nye aktivister fra Antikrigsnettverk og Fredsinitiativ mot krig i Irak!

Det innkalles herved til et aktivistmøte for å forberede en markering mot okkupasjonen av Irak i Trondheim lørdag 25/10. Dette er en internasjonal markeringsdag.

Tid: Onsdag 15/10, kl. 18-20
Sted: Scapa 2dre etg. Brattørgata

Første oktober ble det avholdt et møte i samme forum der vi besluttet å jobbe for å være en del av den internasjonale antikrigsmarkeringen 25/10 som her i Norge går under navnet SEND SOLDATENE HJEM.

Vi inviterer alle interesserte (dere trengs!!) til å komme på møtet 15/10 for å planlegge hvilken form dette skal få i Trondheim.
Håper på stort oppmøte denne gangen, og at dere sprer dette initiativet til andre!

Vel møtt!

Vennlig hilsen
Kristin Bjørlykke

PS: Sender ved en rapport om status i sakens anledning fra USA.
