The U.S. corporate and banking establishment seeks to
maintain U.S. domination throughout the globe for their
own benefit. It is these corporate and banking elites who
profit from the exploitation of oil and natural gas
resources in the Middle East and South Asia, from bloated
military contracts and from Bush administration bailouts
and tax breaks. With skyrocketing unemployment, evictions,
foreclosures, and slashing of welfare and healthcare
benefits at home, people in the U.S. need billions to
create jobs, improve our schools, and provide quality
health care. Instead the Bush administration is spending
billions on bombing civilians and military aggression.

Record layoffs continue and the U.S. government’s response
is billions of dollars in bailouts to corporations and
insurance companies while cuts in social programs
continue. The immediate response of the Bush
administration after September 11 was a $15 billion
package for major airlines, while they have refused to
increase unemployment insurance for 100,000 travel
industry employees and 400,000 workers in other sectors
who lost their jobs.  The Bush-proposed $100 billion
“economic stimulus package” that is under consideration
would not only repeal the corporate minimum tax, but would
refund to the big corporations of the U.S. fourteen years
of taxes, and would provide more permanent tax cuts for
the wealthiest individuals.

As the U.S. war and occupation in Afghanistan continues
and that country lies in ruins, the Bush administration is
preparing to widen its war against other countries. Many
in the Bush administration would like to greatly intensify
their 11-year-long war against Iraq.  Eleven years of
U.S.-led UN sanctions and bombing of Iraq have already
left over 1.5 million Iraqis dead and many more ill and
malnourished. Almost 700 special forces and “advisers”
have been sent to the Philippines, and talk continues of
military exercises involving 2,000-4,000 U.S. troops.

The U.S./Israeli war against the Palestinian people is
intensifying as the U.S. continues to give billions in aid
and political support to the Israeli government, which is
brutally oppressing the Palestinian people. There can be
no lasting peace in the Middle East until the Palestinian
people’s right to self-determination and a homeland are
secured.

Other countries targeted for possible attack include
Somalia, Sudan, Indonesia, Yemen, North Korea and Cuba.
The U.S. is intensifying their aid to countries such as
Colombia and the Philippines who are attempting to
suppress people’s struggles.  At this moment, the U.S. is
using Plan Colombia as a wedge to intensify its
intervention, threatening a Vietnam-type war in Latin
America. 

As the war abroad threatens to expand, the war at home
against Arab, Muslim, South Asian and all working people
continues.  So-called “anti-terrorism” legislation has
legitimized and legalized racial profiling as more than
5,000 young Arab men have become the targets of FBI
investigation, over 1,200 people have been detained and
college administrations have been asked by the FBI to turn
over names and records of Arab, Muslim and international
students. Bush and Ashcroft are reorganizing federal law
enforcement into a domestic surveillance police state that
gives the government license to listen to the public's
phone calls, read the public's e-mail, execute covert
searches, and target political and religious groups.

On SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 2002, tens of thousands of peace
activists, workers, students, labor unionists, and others
will converge in Washington, DC for a massive march on the
White House to say:
MONEY FOR JOBS AND EDUCATION  NOT WAR!
STOP THE RACIST ATTACKS!
DEFEND CIVIL LIBERTIES AND CIVIL RIGHTS!

*The April 27 national march on Washington against racism
and war will be the conclusion of a week of mass actions.
 We call on people to join the National Colombia
Mobilization April 19-22
(http://www.soaw.org/colombiaMobilization.html ).*

International A.N.S.W.E.R.  Act Now to Stop War & End
Racism - is a coalition that was formed in response to the
headlong rush to war and racist attacks following the
horrific events of September 11.  A.N.S.W.E.R. has the

across the U.S. and around the world.
