This page is be utilized for several purposes:
1. To provide a sampling of the positions of various organizations around the state and possibly nation.
2. To provide material for those organizations who would like to generate statements for distribution.
3. To encourage a friendly debate between various tendencies within the anti-war movement in NJ.
The preference would be for us to provide links to materials on your own sites. That way you can maintain your own statements and there is less effort on our part. However, not everyone has a web site and there could be valuable information and perspectives by some not so endowed. If you have a statement that you think could be valuable to our efforts, simply send the materials (or URL).
Please be advised that the NJ Coalition Against War on Iraq is united by the simple position of opposition to any attack or U.S. war on Iraq. While many groups and individuals that are part of our efforts have more elaborate perspectives, some offering alternatives to war, some urging that the movement demand a lifting of sanctions, an end to the ongoing bombings and withdrawal of U.S. forces from the region and others linking the issue of the war to other issues like reparations or a comprehensive Middle East solution. The opinions in these statements might not represent those of the coalition.
There is another page that we are developing further to provide materials – not necessarily opinions on the situation but information about local council resolutions, depleted uranium, counter military recruitment, etc.
