NEW YORK - Three activists with No Blood For Oil were
arrested this morning shortly after the United Nations Security
Council passed a US-sponsored resolution imposing new terms
on Iraq. One activist was arrested while trying to walk into the
main UN building to denounce the resolution and the Security
Council's blatant repudiation of its mission to stop the scourge
of war and its decision to tacitly back US aggression in the
Middle East. The other two were arrested while trying to march
from the Isaiah Wall at 43rd Street and First Avenue, where
activists were gathered, to 45th Street.

Activists who arrived at the Isaiah Wall at 9am faced hundreds
of police and several police vans - the first occasion after
almost two months of daily rallies when the police made a show
of force at the UN. The three arrestees were taken to the 17th
Precinct, East 51st Street between Lexington and Third
Avenues, and are still being held there. No Blood For Oil is
calling on all New Yorkers who oppose the US plan for
aggression against Iraq and who support the right to free speech
and assembly to come to the 17th Precinct to support the
arrestees.
