London, 3 March 2003 Reclaim The Bases: War Resisters’ International calls for nonviolent action at military bases on 5/6 April 2003
Dear friend, After the impressive demonstrations on February 15th, War Resisters’ International is now calling for nonviolent action at military bases on 5/6 April 2003.
This call to “reclaim the bases” is a specific call following our “Say No!” statement from September 2001, which was so far signed by more than 1,000 people. With this letter, we send you our call to “Reclaim The Bases”, including reports on inspiring actions, and again our “Say No!” statement.
We hope you will be able to get involved in Reclaim the Bases, and we are looking forward to receiving your report – and would welcome photos from your activities. Please get in touch with the WRI office as soon as you know what you are planning for 5/6 April.
It is always encouraging to know that a lot of people take similar action on the same weekend all over the world – we only can know if you tell us. War Resisters’ International will provide updated information – and additional resources – on its website at
Again, we need your information to update our website, and to spread the word about growing resistance to war. War Resisters’ International needs your support to turn “Reclaim The Bases” into a successful action. Your donation helps us to coordinate the weekend of nonviolent action, and to continue our resistance against the war on Iraq – and against war in general.
Thank you for your support.
