The ANSWER Coalition has called for nationwide emergency demonstrations in 
response to the bombing of Libya. How could the U.S. government get away with  
launching another war when they tell us the country is so broke that  vital 
public services must be slashed and public workers must be fired  in massive 
numbers?

SIGN THE PETITION: Stop the war on Libya! Money for jobs and schools, not war!

Boston students who staged a walk-out and protest on Wednesday against the 
imminent vote to cut the public school budget linked these issues:

"They say there is no money for schools and America just started a new war and 
is bombing Libya," said 16-year-old Pedro Montanez, a member of El Movimiento 
and a student at Fenway High School. "All that costs billions of dollars and 
that  should be spent on youth and education."

The same global powers that brutally colonized Africa, stole its natural 
resources and enslaved millions of its people are now bombing the continent's 
largest oil producer. This most recent act of mass violence is allegedly 
motivated by a tender concern for "democracy" and "freedom" for Libyans.

Washington's goal in Libya is to have the U.S.-backed rebel leadership of 
Libya's civil war take power in all of Libya or, as an alternative,  to become a 
new governing power in the oil-rich eastern part of the  country.

A transfer of command to NATO will not change the criminal character of the 
military operation OR whose interests it seeks to secure. NATO's Supreme Allied 
Commander in Europe is--and has always been--a U.S. military officer. A British 
officer is second in the military structure. NATO's military objectives will be 
set out by Washington and its European allies.

The United States needs a real anti-imperialist movement--a movement that can 
resist the lies and demonization schemes that the corporate media churns out to 
justify military aggression. Join us at Park St. this Saturday at 1pm to say: 
"Stop the U.S./French/British War on Libya! Money for Jobs, Schools: Not War!"
