(en) US, NYC, SDS* CALL TO ACTION: PROTEST BUSH AT THE MERCHANT MARINE ACADEMY ON JUNE 19

STOP US WAR CRIMES: JOIN SDS IN A PROTEST AT THE US MERCHANT MARINE ACADEMY
New York, NY - George W. Bush is speaking at the 2006 commencement at
the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY on the
morning of June 19. Join Students for a Democratic Society and friends in
confronting Bush's criminal acts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The recent
revelations of atrocities in Haditha and Ishaqi and elsewhere clearly
reveal the barbarity of the US Government's actions. In an effort to
end the US war crimes, stop the use of torture and eliminate "pre-emptive"
invasions, SDS New York City is calling for a nonviolent protest at the
Vickery (Main) Gate of the USMMA at 10:00 AM on Monday, June 19, 2006.

Doug Viehmeyer an event organizer with Bergen County SDS (NJ), said:
"The architects of the Iraq and Afganistan wars and occupations are
clearly war criminals. While the military personnel are directly responsible
for the recent atrocities in Iraq the ultimate responsibility lies with the
civilian and military leadership that orchestrated the wars. They must
be confronted - and stopped." Viehmeyer added: "This is a nonviolent act
of civil resistance and we urge everyone to join us in the streets."

"We are asking people to bring noisemakers: pots and pans and other
weapons of mass democracy," said Thomas Good of Movement for a Democratic
Society, the post-grad wing of SDS. "We are nonviolent but we will not
be silent - what we are seeing here is not a liberal democracy gone
somehow wrong. This is an emerging fascism and it is our duty as residents
of the US to stop the madness," he added.

The action has been endorsed by Cindy Sheehan, AfterDowningStreet.org,
Left Turn magazine and is open to the public.

To get to the US Merchant Marine Academy:

By Train:
From Penn Station (34th St & 7th Ave), take the Port Washington branch of the
Long Island Railroad to the Great Neck Station (about 35 minutes). Take the
"N58" Long Island Bus to the Academy ($2.00 - exact change).

By Car:
Long Island Expressway to Exit 32/Little Neck Parkway.
Left (heading north) onto Little Neck Parkway for 3/4 mile, to Northern
Boulevard. Right on Northern Boulevard/Route 25A. Go east through the
village of Little Neck for several traffic lights to the intersection with
Great Neck Road. Go left (north) on Great Neck Road, then straight
(bearing left as roads fork off to the right). Continue north. The road
becomes Bayview Avenue, then West Shore Road (total distance: 2.5 miles).
At end of West Shore Road, turn right on to Kings Point Road. At the next
stop sign turn left onto Steamboat Road. The main gate is one block ahead.

SDS is an education and social action organization dedicated to increasing
democracy in all phases of our common life. It seeks to promote the active
participation of young people in the formation of a movement to build a society
free from poverty, ignorance, war, exploitation, racism and sexism.
