Due to a large number of groups and individuals raising 
concerns over the original date for the regional planning 
meeting, the date has been changed to Sunday, March 16, 2003.

The agenda will start at 10:00 sharp in order to accomodate people
who may have to leave Ottawa by early evening to return home.

==================================
2)  Callout for the Regional Planning Meeting
==================================

Anti-capitalist Community Action (ACA) and the Committee 
for Peace in Iraq (CPI) invite all organizations, individuals, 
and affinity groups to a regional planning meeting on Sunday, 
March 16, 2003 to prepare for a visit to Ottawa this spring by 
George W. Bush.

With the arrival of George W. Bush in Ottawa on May 5, 
2003 Anti- Capitalist Community Action (ACA) and the 
Committee for Peace in Iraq (CPI) felt it was only fitting 
to help create a welcoming committee of all those 
who oppose his policies.

ACA and the CPI will host a regional planning meeting on 
Sunday,  March 16th, where groups and individuals can begin 
to collaborate and organize collectively in preparation for 
May 5th.

The March 16th meeting will require some logistical 
organization so there are ongoing meetings held in Ottawa 
to plan for the Regional Meeting.  These ongoing meetings are 
only to deal with logistical concerns around March 16th
(venue, food, facilitators) and to draft a proposed 
decision-making method and proposed agenda.  We invite any 
and all individuals or groups to participate in this planning 
process.

While we recognize the right and desire for groups to organize 
autonomous actions, we encourage groups both in Ottawa/Hull 
(and Outaouais area) and other communities organizing around 
his visit to get in touch with us so we can co-ordinate with 
each other. Our aim is to help build a large coalition of groups 
and individuals who oppose the policies of the Bush administration 
and the systems of oppression which that administration represents.

So get Ready!  More info coming soon.

attend the Regional Planning Meeting.  Billeting will be 
available on both Saturday, March 15th and Sunday, March 16th.  
Logistical work on this is still being worked out, but

might require billeting by emailing gwbfanclub@ziplip.com
