>From "Peter Jovanovic" <peterzoran@hotmail.com> 

Following on from the Zero War conference held in Wollongong last December, 
Canberra Treason is organising Zero War 2: A revolutionary anti-war forum 
aimed at facilitating direct action, revolt and total liberation.

In response to capital's wars a large antiwar movement has arisen in most 
parts of the world. Up to 30 million protested the war in mid-February, the 
latest of several international days of protest against the war. On March 5 
there were student strikes and protests against the war in several 
countries. While the mass protests are encouraging most of the antiwar 
movement remains limited to appeals to the state not to go to war. However 
there are encouraging signs that sections of the antiwar movement are 
beginning to move beyond the passive protest favoured by the Green, 
religious and Trotskyist leaders of the antiwar movement. There have been a 
series of minor direct actions against military facilities in the US, 
Britain and Ireland, and recently trains carrying US military supplies were 
delayed by mass blockades in Italy. In Sydney some of the striking students 
escaped the control of protest organisers and ran laughing and shouting 
through the streets while in Canoga, California, striking high school 
students looted a petrol station.

With Zero War 2 we hope to foster discussion and coordination between those 
who wish to deepen the radical tendencies within the antiwar movement in 
Australia. We also intend to organise direct action against the war to take 
place during the national demonstrations at Parliament House on Sunday 23 
March and Monday 24 March. We hope that people will stay on from the Zero 
War meeting and come to the demo.
