Major Religious & Civic leaders To Launch

National Coalition To Oppose President.s Push for War with Iraq

Win Without War To Resist Bush Preemption of Peace Process

PLEDGE TO MOBILIZE MAINSTREAM OPPOSITION & SUSTAINED PROTESTS IF PRESSURE FOR WAR CONTINUES

Leaders of major civic and faith organizations will gather in the nation.s capital next week to announce the creation of a new coalition in support of a peaceful, diplomatic solution to the crisis in Iraq.  The new group, Win Without War, represents millions of Americans and seeks to prevent bloodshed and loss of life on all sides by slowing the Bush Administration.s apparent rush to war so that U.N. Arms Inspectors have time to carry out their mission.  Win Without War leaders believe that security for Americans and our allies abroad can be achieved through aggressive inspections and sustained monitoring. They will pledge to continue and intensify the protests that begin next week in dozens of cities for as long as the Bush Administration presses for invasion of Iraq.
