Second People's Assembly held in Vermont at the Barre
Labor Hall. Two resolutions were passed including one
demanding that Vermonters serving in the military resist
all orders to kill and harm iraqis curring the current
imperialist U.S. invation Press Release
The People‚EUR^(TM)s Assembly Against The War
Barre, Vermont, April 5th, 2003

On April 5th, 2003, a People‚EUR^(TM)s Assembly
Against the War was held in the working class granite town
of Barre, Vermont. This assembly was a continuation of the
first People‚EUR^(TM)s Assembly, attended by more than
250 common Vermonters, held in the State House of
Montpelier immediately following the U.S. invasion of Iraq.
This second assembly, open to any and all Vermonters,
drew more than 50 common Vermonters, including
teachers, blue collar workers, labor union members,
Anarchists from the Free Society Collective and the Green
Mountain Anarchist Collective (a NEFAC Support
Collective), young and old alike. At said assembly, various
strategies where discussed regarding how we, as common
citizens, can come to stop the current war of aggression
waged by the Bush administration against the people of
Iraq. Furthermore, this assembly has adopted the two
below resolutions. These resolutions where presented,
discussed, debated, amended, and adopted by an open and
directly democratic process.


First Resolution
Adopted by the Second People‚EUR^(TM)s Assembly
Against the War
as Discussed, Amended, and Voted on in The Old Labor
Hall
in Barre, Vermont, On April 5th, 2003

We here the People of Vermont, as assembled today at the
Barre Labor Hall, stand in full solidarity with the anti war
resolution passed by the First People‚EUR^(TM)s
Assembly which met in the Montpelier State House
immediately following the imperialist U.S. invasion of Iraq.

Let it also be affirmed that we stand in full solidarity with
the anti war resolution passed by representatives of over
two million labor union members at the founding of U.S.
Labor Against the War, and subsequently endorsed by the
Vermont Worker‚EUR^(TM)s Center and the numerous
member labor unions throughout the Green Mountains,

And let it further be resolved that:

Whereas the invasion of Iraq is illegal, unjustified, and
immoral,

Whereas the people of Vermont have no quarrel with the
Iraqi people,

Whereas governments are constituted by and for the
people, making all tyrants and/or undemocratically
empowered leaders an illuminate authority,

Whereas the current imperialist invasion of Iraq puts
Vermonters currently serving in the U.S. armed services
unduly in harms way,

We hereby resolve that all Vermonters currently serving in
the U.S. armed services cease and desist from all activity
which in anyway puts the lives and wellbeing of the people
of Iraq and/or themselves in danger of harm.

Let it also be resolved that these Vermonters should take
it upon themselves to carry out this resolution.

_The People‚EUR^(TM)s Assembly,
Barre labor Hall,
Saturday, April 5th, 2003


Second Resolution
Adopted by the Second People‚EUR^(TM)s Assembly
Against the War
as Discussed, Amended, and Voted on in the Old Labor
Hall
in Barre, Vermont, On April 5th, 2003

Whereas only the President of the United States had the
authority on 9/11/01 to order the U.S. Air Force and the
D.C. Air National Guard to supercede the standard
operating procedures which include interception of any
aircraft flying outside its flight path within minutes of
notification by air traffic controllers,

Whereas air traffic controllers did notify the appropriate
air force bases,

Whereas the President did order the stand down of all
planes whose mission it was to intercept errant flights,

Whereas such orders to stand down constitute possible
complicity in the 9/11 attacks,

Be it resolved that this assembly demands an immediate,
independent investigation into any and all anomalies
occurring in the standard operating procedure of our air
defenses on 9/11.

Barre labor Hall,
