invite people in. There would be different rooms each on a theme. The idea
was to be creative and to shock people into realising this is not about
people somewhere on the other side of the world. Its about them. This could
be co-ordinated with other forms of protest, like internet action, fax
These were just early thoughts. The purpose of getting together on the 17th
Jan is so that, hopefully, people with lots of different interests as
individuals and/or from different organisations will pool skills and ideas
so, instead or as well as groups acting alone (which makes people
vulnerable), we can support others and pull something together.

How the revolution doesn't have to be bloody and how some can make a start right now. Starts off with a technical description, then there're a few very generic pictures of how it would work, from micro to macro. Then some answers to possible questions. Please, enjoy.

12-12-2003 18:10The Coalition took many precautions to spare civilians from the effects of the ground war, including vetting cluster munition strikes and giving guidance to troops involved in direct combat. The use by U.S. and U.K. ground forces of cluster munitions, especially in or near populated areas, however, was one of the major causes of civilian casualties in the war. Moreover, in some instances of direct combat, problems with training on as well as dissemination and clarity of the rules of engagement may have contributed to loss of civilian life.
