Crawford, Texas (Matt Slocum / AP)
CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - A dozen war protesters
were arrested Wednesday for setting up camp
near President Bush's ranch in defiance of
new local bans on roadside camping and parking.
About four hours after the
group pitched six tents and huddled in sleeping
bags and blankets, McLennan County sheriff's
deputies arrested them for criminal trespassing.
Another dozen or so demonstrators
left the public right of way after deputies
warned them they would be arrested.
The protest was set to coincide
with Bush's Thanksgiving ranch visit.
The arrests were made by
more than two dozen deputies who calmly approached
the demonstrators in their tents and asked
if they wanted to walk out on their own or
be carried. Two chose to be carried. They
were to be taken to jail for booking.
Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan
wasn't among the protesters Wednesday because
of a family emergency in California, but she
planned to be at the camp later in the week.
``We are proud to be here,''
Dede Miller, Sheehan's sister, said hours
before her arrest as she huddled in a blanket
at the campsite. ``This is just so important.
What we did in August really moved us forward,
and this is just a continuation of it.''
In August, hundreds of demonstrators
camped off the road during a 26-day protest
led by Sheehan, whose 24-year-old soldier
son Casey was killed in Iraq last year. But
a month later, county commissioners banned
camping in any county ditch and parking within
7 miles of the ranch, citing safety and traffic
Earlier this week, three
demonstrators filed a federal lawsuit against
McLennan County over the two local bans.
During the last several weeks
of their summer protest, the activists had
camped on a private 1-acre lot that a sympathetic
landowner let them use. That land is about
a mile from Bush's ranch.

EUREKA ANTI-WAR PROTEST
[IMC Indy Bay Media Center]
On November 18th, the Eureka Military Recruiting
Center was shut down for the day by approximately
200 protesters. Present at the protest were
students, peace groups, Buddhists meditating
for peace and people young and old who are
disgusted with Bushs war for oil. Participation
in this sparsely populated area was high,
partly in protest of police brutality and
the arrest of four cyclist on route to an
earlier war protest. Like the earlier protest,
a CHP helicopter brought in from Redding circled
overhead and police used scare tactics with
the presence of rubber bullet weapons and
tear gas launchers. No arrests were made but
at least 6 harassment citations were given
to protesters for such things as riding a
bicycle on the sidewalk and obstructing traffic.

10, 2005: NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR GI RESISTERS
We urge you to join us in a "National Day of
Action for GI Resisters" on Tuesday May 10, 2005.
This is the day before the US military is planning
to bring sailor Pablo Paredes and soldier Kevin Benderman
before military court martial tribunals for their
opposition to the Iraq War. They face forfeiture of
pay and benefits, and military jail time.
On December 6, 2004, Navy Petty Officer
Pablo Paredes refused to board his ship as it left
the San Diego Naval Station in support of the Iraq
War and occupation. At the time of his refusal, Pablo
said he hoped his protest might inspire other GI's
to refuse to take part in the war.
On January 5, 2005, Kevin Benderman
refused to deploy for a second tour of duty in Iraq
with the Army's Third Infantry Division. At the same
time seventeen other soldiers from his unit went AWOL,
two tried to kill themselves and one had a relative
shoot him in the leg to avoid deploying.
Both men applied for discharge from
the US military as conscientious objectors. The military
has wrongly rejected both claims.
It's time for us to escalate public
pressure and action in support of Pablo, Kevin and
the thousands of other courageous men and women who
have followed their conscience to uphold international
law and to take a principled stand against the unjust,
illegal war and occupation of Iraq. It's time we had
Objection and resistance by military servicepersons
is a healthy and important assertion of Democracy
in a country where the decisions to invade Iraq, to
maintain an occupation, and engage in widespread human
right violations and torture were made undemocratically
in violation of international law and based on continuing
lies and disinformation.
Please join us by organizing a public
demonstration, vigil or rally of support on May 10.
Every action, no matter how large or small is important.
* Send letters of support and donations to cover legal
fees to Pablo and Kevin via their websites listed
* Come to San Diego, California (Pablo) or Fort Stewart,

democratic rights be respected. A better world is

12, 2005 Sad News: Military Judge Convicts Sailor
Turned Anti-War Activist Pablo Paredes
May. 12, 2005 - A sailor turned anti-war
activist was convicted Wednesday in a special court-martial
of refusing to board the USS Bonhomme Richard as
it deployed to the Persian Gulf in December.
A military judge found Petty Officer
3rd Class Pablo Paredes guilty of missing his ship's
movement, but dismissed a second count of unauthorized
absence, ruling it duplicative.
The proceeding then moved into the
sentencing phase. The 23-year-old New Yorker could
receive a year in jail, a forfeiture of pay, reduction
in rank and a bad-conduct discharge.
Paredes had waived his right to have
his trial heard by a military jury.
Paredes, a weapons control technician,
refused to board the ship on Dec. 6 as it left for
a six-month deployment in the Pacific and Indian
oceans. The Bonhomme Richard and two other ships
were transporting about 3,000 Marines to Iraq.
At the time, Paredes told reporters
he did not want to be part of a war he views as
illegal and immoral. He said his military training
has taught him to avoid what he views as a war crime.
Navy prosecutors, however, blocked
Paredes' plans to put the war on trial during the
court-martial. A Navy officer reviewing Paredes'
request for conscientious objector status has also
recommended that it be denied.
Defense attorney Jeremy Warren said
Paredes passed up deals that would have minimized
his punishment in exchange for a guilty plea.
"He's not backing down from what
he did or why he did it," Warren said.

STORY: Arab, Iranian, and Northern
African residents throughout the United States went
to INS offices earlier in the week for a re-registration
program mandated by the INS. About 1/4
of them were then detained. Since these residents
went down to the INS offices voluntarily, the detentions
came as a shock to their families and the wider community.
Upwards of 500 Southern Californians, (young and old,
followers of differing religions), were detained.
As of Wednesday night, many still remain locked away.
It's fair to assume that others in similar situations
are also detained throughout the country.

Cindy Grows, Opposition to the War Expands
In a way that rarely happens, the action of one
woman has touched the hearts of people in every
corner of the country, moving many to take some
action themselves. Since August 6, Cindy
Sheehan has been camping outside the Bush ranch
in Crawford, Texas. Her straightforward request
for a meeting with the president has been met with
the same arrogance this administration has shown
most of the world. But while her call for an end
to the U.S. war and occupation in Iraq is being
ignored by the president, it is resonating with
people from all walks of life.
The encampment in Crawford will continue until
Bush meets with this mother whose son was killed
fighting in a war that never should have happened,
or Bush leaves his vacation home and returns to
Washington, D.C. United for Peace and Justice urges
you to join this effort by taking action in your
own community. As strong as the presence is in Crawford,
the power of our movement rests in what each of
us does in our own home towns. This national movement
to end the war in Iraq must be as visible and as
determined as Cindy Sheehan.

19, 2005: The World Says End the War!
March 19-20 marks the two-year anniversary of
the U.S. bombing and invasion of Iraq. There's a
new urgency and a stronger determination within
the global antiwar movement to bring the troops
your March 19-20 protest on UFPJ calendar
list of March 19-20 events
LOCAL ACTIONS NATIONWIDE UFPJ calls on supporters
of peace and justice in every corner of the country,
in communities large and small, to organize local
protests against the war on Saturday, March 19.
On the first anniversary of the war, at
least 319 cities and towns across the United
States organized protests. This year there is the
potential to organize even more demonstrations,
and to bring more people than ever out into the
MAJOR REGIONAL PROTEST IN FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.
UFPJ is also supporting a major regional demonstration
in Fayetteville, North Carolina. We hope those of
you within driving distance of Fayetteville will
make this action your priority. Fayetteville is
home to Fort Bragg - ground zero for the 82nd Airborne
Division and many of the Army's elite units. It
is also home to a growing base of anti-war activists
and organizations: military folks, veterans, families
of active-duty soldiers and veterans, students,
workers, housewives, clergy, educators, all are
part of a vibrant, and growing, statewide network.
For details on the protest, visit the website of
Carolina Peace & Justice Coalition, one
of the groups spearheading the event. | More

No War with Iraq!
Protests | Military
Situation | Cost
of the War
From Goshen, Ind., grannies collecting
relief kits to a "die-in" on an Ivy League
campus, Americans took to the streets Tuesday in mostly
small, low-key events to protest a possible war on
than 100 people were arrested.
Yet, the Bush and Military still playing
their War Drums, desperately
looking for War, according from the latest calculations,
Experts, including Senator Joseph Biden, Chair of
the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, indicate
that the war may cost
as much as $80-$100 billion. In the worst case,
a war with Iraq could
cost the United States nearly $2 trillion, almost
as much as the government spent in the last budget
year - according to new projections.
Nations' inspections in Iraq is still going on,
oil-for-food programme still rolling. US and UK
Continue accusing Iraq human rights abuse for the
justification for the war, while double standards
neighboring countries' human rights issues. Even
worse, sleeping with the same bad, corporate
media are manufacturing hoax and bias to support
and cheerleading upcoming war in Iraq.

Feb 15: Over One Million in Hyde Park, London
Feb 15, the day after Valentines Day,
the world witnessed an unprecedented and truly massive
outpouring of love in cities all over the world. I
speak, of course, about the peace demonstrations that
took place globally.
It was I've now read in various sources
the single largest day of protest in world history.
How many people does it take to set a record like
that? Estimates are that between 8 to 11.5 million
people took to the streets in peace to demonstrate
against the United States going to war against Iraq.
Our sheer numbers are now changing the
debate. We have assumed our rightful position as citizens
who demand that our leaders lead with morality, equanimity
and peace. Make no mistake about it: we are changing
the world right now by embracing peace and we will
continue to shape future political debate by continuing
to embrace peace.
