bauaw: Bay Area United Against War

Bay Area United Against War was formed as a democratically organized (one person, one vote and majority rule) coalition of groups and individuals opposed to U.S. war and occupation of Iraq, Afghanistan or anywhere else. We organized to firmly oppose “pre-emptive” wars, the “War on Terror” and U.S. support and military aid to Israel’s war on the Palestinian people. Also, to oppose the economic war against the American people.

While our government spends billions on the military, jails, and bailouts for banks and corporations—jobs, healthcare, housing, Social Security and education are on the chopping block.

The Patriot Act has stripped us of our constitutional rights and the Homeland Security Act has brought more law enforcement to monitor all opposition to the status quo.

Our coalition was originally formed December 14th, 2002. We initiated the giant February 16th massive march and rally in San Francisco that brought together four major coalitions, Bay Area United Against War, Not In Our Name, International A.N.S.W.E.R. and United for Peace and Justice.

We no longer function as a group. However, this newsletter still goes out regularly to over 370 individuals and groups in the Bay Area.
