PRESS ADVISORY
October 23, 2002, 12:45 p.m.

PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY, 4 P.M., WITH ACTIVISTS
WHO OCCUPIED U.N. GENERAL ASSEMBLY

Members of No Blood For Oil! who successfully carried out an
occupation of the General Assembly chamber at the United
Nations on Monday morning will be appearing at a press
conference at 4 p.m. today at the U.N.'s Isaiah Wall, East 43rd
Street and First Avenue in Manhattan. They will discuss the
action itself, why they carried it out, and provide a report on the
status of their cases. Thirteen activists were arrested in the
General Assembly, and another six during a simultaneous sit-in
in front of the U.S. mission to the U.N.

The press conference will immediately precede a Vigil for Peace,
Justice, and Sanity that No Blood For Oil will be holding this
afternoon until 6 p.m. at the Isaiah Wall. No Blood For Oil! is
calling on all who oppose the planned invasion of Iraq to
participate in a drum circle and candlelight vigil at the U.N. to
express determination to stop this needless and unjustified war.
