WAR TIMES

PLEASE FREELY DISTRIBUTE AND POST
January 29, 2002

The pilot issue of WAR TIMES, a new biweekly newspaper opposing the "war on terrorism," will roll off the press on February 14. (See the new list of national endorsers below.) Featuring an exclusive interview with Danny Glover and a letter to President Bush from Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchu, the premier of this bilingual, free publication will be distributed in several dozen cities across the country.

But we need your help to extend WAR TIMES' reach even further and lay a durable foundation for long-term publication. Please join hundreds of other activists across the country by contributing in one or more of the following ways:

***Volunteer to distribute the pilot issue to your co-workers, friends, classmates, family and/or members of your organization. Contact us at <
wartimes@attbi.com>, EBC/War Times, 1230 Market Street, PMB 409, San Francisco, CA 94102, 510-869-5156, to let us know how many copies you would like and make arrangements to get a bundle to you.

***Make a tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to EBC/War Times at the address above, or sign up as a monthly sustainer with a pledge of $10/month or more.

***Volunteer your writing, photographic, or drawing skills when WAR TIMES goes into regular publication.

***Give us feedback on WAR TIMES' pilot issue so we can make changes and improvements for the first regular issue.

***Pass this message on to others who want to see a regular, accessible and hard-hitting anti-"war on terrorism" message reach hundreds of thousands of people in every community, constituency and region of the country.

***If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, come to the big WAR TIMES launch party, Saturday, Feb. 16, Noon- 4pm, Mandela Village/Youth Empowerment Center, 1357 Fifth Street, West Oakland, to discuss and strategize about the current "educational moment" and then fan out to distribute thousands of copies of this free paper all across the northern California (childcare provided but please RSVP; wheelchair accessible).

With your help, WAR TIMES can hit the ground with tremendous momentum and make a difference at this perilous time for our country and the world. We hope to hear from you.
