Dear Friends of Peace,

This Friday we will have our regularly scheduled Peace Friday demonstration at the corner of Ocean and Water Streets in central Santa Cruz. We gather there every Friday, rain or shine, from 5-6pm in the evening to do our part initiating dialogue in our community about the effects of warfare in our society. Hundreds of business commuters see us on their way home from work after a busy week and our regular energetic demonstration helps inspire both thought and action against the war.

This week will be more significant than most as we continue organizing local participation in the large Peace/Antiwar march and rally in San Francisco Jan. 18th. We are organizing buses to leave from the county building on Ocean Street (near Water) at 9am that Saturday morning and will be back in town by 6pm.

As the winter deepens the United States moves closer and closer to war. As we approach the Jan. 27th report from UN weapons inspectors, the Defense Department positions plans and troops in the Middle East for an immediate military campaign. Pentagon sources say we could have many as 250,000 troops fighting in a war in Iraq and they assure us that such a number with our technology would quickly "manhandle," in the word of retired Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey, the Iraqi armed forces.

Come out this Friday and let Santa Cruz know what you think.
