pounce at a moment's notice, we need more signers for the petition of
librarians opposing pre-emptive military "blitzkrieg" against Iraq. Please

others personally or on other lists.
The URL is http://www.libr.org/peace/Iraq.Sept.2002.html.

Let's aim for a thousand voices of collective opposition from the library
and archives professional world against wanton destructiion and senseless
violence and death.
Time is of the essence. President Bush is about to make his pronunciamento
to the world on the global media. Let us be prepared with as strong a
response as possible. ANd then, we must seek appropriate ways to resist
the madness of militarism and accompanying authoritarianism.
