"National Stand Down
End The Iraq War - Demonstrations and Nonviolent Resistance at

Recruiting Stations Across the Country

November 18, 2005

Americans sign on to go into harm's way to defend their
country if
necessary, but instead they are being turned into harm's
ministers in a war
that has claimed more then 100,000 Iraqi lives
and nearly 2,000 
Americans. The President and Congress have
breached a sacred trust with our
soldiers and abused their oath to
defend the Constitution by leading young
Americans to kill and die
in a war based on lies.

As the Bush
Administration refuses to make plans to bring our troops
home, join us for
"National Stand Down Day," as we halt the
machinery that takes young
Americans off to this illegal and endless
war in Iraq.

We welcome,
and will provide coordination and support as possible,
for all manner of
protests and demonstrations at recruiting centers.
We want to especially
encourage and assist nonviolent resistance
actions, such as civil resistance
or civil disobedience. As we
recognize and support soldiers who take great
risks to refuse
fighting in this unjust war, so it is our moral
responsibility to
share that risk to the extent that we can, by preventing
even more
young Americans from being placed in such jeopardy
