    Protest Against the Sanctions in Iraq

    Here is an email I recieved, its for Toronto residents, but the "protest week" is actually taking place around the world, organized by non-Muslims.

    What you can do is the following:

    1) Tell as many poeple about what is going on as possible,
    2) setup an information table, in
    conjunction with other groups on campus / high school (womens center, save the children, religious groups, etc...), the week of Sept. 27 to Oct. 1st, 3) make and hand out flyers, petitions, etc...,
    4) if possible organise a caravan from your school to Queen's Park for the Ralley, or do a protest ralley of your own on your campus.

    PROTEST AGAINST THE SANCTIONS IN IRAQ

    AT QUEEN'S PARK,

    ON FRIDAY OCTOBER 1st, 1999 @ 11:30AM

    JUMAA' ON THE GROUNDS OF QUEEN'S PARK @ 1:15

    As you may or may not know, the week of Sept 27 to Oct 02, has been declared by the International Action Centre as Protest week against the Sanctions on Iraq.

    What effect do the sanctions have on the crimnals?

    None.

    What effect do the sanctions have on the weak and innocent?

    *7500 children die every month.
    Total to Date: 1.5 MILLION children DEAD so far...

    *A Generation Sanctioned out of Existence...

    * Be people of action, of progression and of life.

    * Increase the weight on your scales on the last day.

    * Let the light of Truth enter your heart and allow it to make your limbs react, for inaction is a sure indication of a dead heart.


    COME out to Queen's Park to protest against the sanctions in Iraq. Let them KNOW that the sanctions are wiping out a generation of children.

    Please forward this message to as many members of your group as possible
    to increase the awareness.

    Please keep in communication with us to let us know of your progress and to let us know what you are doing so that we can facilitate this event in an organized manner...

    And remember: YOUR VOICE MAY SAVE A LIFE!

    I don't know if anyone from here attended, but if you did thanks. I got there late myself. If you didn't attend, you can still help. Contact your MP or congressmen and let them know you don't support the sanctions. And pray for the 250 children who die everyday in Iraq.
