> RoundHouse anti-war statement
This is the statment we plan to deliver this weekend in DC at the big
anti-war protest.   We should make a couple thousand copies.  We'd like a
heads up of anyone else who might be there so we can have a better idea
how many we'll be able to distribute.

The plan is for us to carpool from Black Planet (1621 Fleet Street,
Baltimore, MD) at 9AM, to assemble at noon at Columbus Ciricle (Union
Station) Washington, D.C. and join the anti-capitalist contingent
(Positive Force, the Anti-Capitalist Convergence, Left Turn)
and then join the march.

NEFACers from New Jersey and Philadelphia also plan to join us.

J18 Roundhouse Statement

NO WAR BUT CLASS WAR

The elite of the USA and Iraq, personified by George Bush and Saddam
Hussein, are leading their countries and much of the world, into a
disastrous confrontation on the plains where civilization arose. The
cost of this clash of powers will be paid, in sweat and in blood, by
millions of people across the globe to enrich the coffers of the
sultans of industry, their executors of State, and officers of war.
In this struggle over petrochemical wealth we will have no share of
riches, only sorrow. This war, and all future wars of nationalist
futility, will never be prevented by appeals to those who would be
our masters. Only when we, whose toil creates their wealth, cast off
these murderous despots, can we enjoy the peace and freedom which is
the right of each and all.

The hollow excuses for this war cannot be defended. The tyrannical
regime in Iraq, while a misery for its citizens and a threat to its
neighbors, is to Western powers but an opportunity to introduce a
greater military presence in an economically and geographically
strategic point on the global chessboard. Even as heads of State
prepare for war against Iraq, they dance diplomatically around North
Korea. Even as they demonize a despot in Iraq, they support
monarchies and dictatorships around the world. They would wage war
against Iraq not because they must, but because they can.

Unemployment, low wages, lack of education and decent housing in the
USA are mirrored by outright starvation and continual warfare in
Iraq. Our mutual suffering is for the benefit of the elite and the
States they control. Taxes on American workers fund the military
that guarantees control of cheap oil for industry and the profits of
its owners. For their pleasure we pay the State, in sweat and in blood.

The oil for which we toil and kill, poisons the very earth itself.
Instead of developing sustainable energy and managing resources for
the benefit of all humankind, the energy most easily controlled is
extracted and marketed for the profit of the powerful. These oil
wars are not only wars against humanity, but against the earth itself.

The current economic crisis of overproduction, wage slavery, and
rampant speculation in the financial markets cannot be solved
by the gluttonous destruction of war. War will only increase the
miseries of we who must pay for the pleasures of those who exploit
the world for their own desires. Americans, and citizens of the
world, must say no to Iraqnophobia and yes to freedom! No to the war
on our fellow citizens and yes to war against the bosses and States! War
will only end with the end of capitalism and nationalism. No to the war on
our fellow workers and yes to war against all of the international ruling
elite! NO WAR BUT CLASS WAR!
