Message to the Antiwar Movement
From Carole Seligman, BAUAW

"We should be in the streets demanding billions for relief,
not a penny for war!
ESPECIALLY as all predictions are that the death toll could
double without adequate relief. Tens of thousands of lives
could be saved.
We could call on the international antiwar groups who linked
up twice around international antiwar days to call coordinated
pickets at every US embassy demanding transfer of funds from
bombing Fallujah [and the war on Iraq as a whole] to tsunami
relief, and on the same day(s) picket Federal buildings around
[Note: the above is a section of an email sent to me with
exactly what I think we should do. The national antiwar
organizations could set it in motion on an emergency basis
and I'll just bet that antiwar people all over the U.S. and the
world will adopt it as their own and build it actively.
STOP THE WAR ON IRAQ! BRING OUR TROOPS HOME NOW!

Let's Hit the Streets
To Defend Abortion Rights!
Saturday, January 22
Emboldened rightwing abortion foes have had the nerve to
announce a march in San Francisco on the anniversary of the historic
Roe v. Wade decision! Show them that San Francisco is
a reproductive rights town -- save the date and plan to
attend a counter demonstration!
What is needed in response is a multi-issue, militant, united
front of women, people of all colors, queers, immigrants, workers
and everyone targeted by the rightwing to show that the anti-
abortionists are not welcome in San Francisco!
Make your opinion heard!
Details of assembly time and place will be announced soon.

I have obtained the originals of the photos I recently posted which were
taken from inside Fallujah.
These are of much higher quality.
Some of the comments have been updated, and there are some additional
pictures added which I did not have before.

Through monologue and spoken word, well-known San Francisco queer
activist and writer Tommi Avicolli Mecca tells his story of growing up in
South Philly's working-class Little Italy. At age 19, fired up with new
pride in being gay, he came out to the world--and his traditional
Roman Catholic southern Italian famiglia--on a TV talk show. The
rest is history, and the subject of this performance.
