HUGE Bono's Angels Action Alert

Hi all!

One of Bono's Angels from Zootopia is really on fire! She's planning a protest on Nov 12th...she calls is Dream Out Loud. Check out the link for info! I've got my calander marked!

Also, find below other ways to get active in the post below from Jubilee USA. I'm really thinking they are a great way we Angels can help. Bono loves these guys.





* * * * * * *

Jubilee Mobilization to Cancel the Debt, Now!

Interfaith Prayer Service and Vigil at US Treasury Department
September 26, 2002 - 7pm

End Corporate Rule: Global Struggles Against the IMF and World Bank
September 25-30, 2002

Mobilization, Rally and March, September 28

* * * * * * *

Updated information and A DOWNLOADABLE FLYER is available now at
http://www.jubileeusa.org/ or call 202-783-0129.



Before these events, some of our partners from the Global South will be
touring the US and Canada speaking out about their experiences of
globalization and debt. They will share the work that they are doing to
create an alternative world. Contact the Jubilee office if you would like
one of these tours to come to your town.


Why come to Washington?
------------------------------------------

There are 1.5 million reasons to come to Washington in September. This
year 1.5 million children will be returning to school in Tanzania. This is
a direct result of savings from debt relief and activism to abolish World
Bank imposed school fees. Just think what kind of world we could create
with full and immediate debt cancellation! Join us to create that world
this September!

We are calling all people of faith and conscience to join us for an
interfaith service and candlelight vigil to bear witness to the Jubilee
vision of liberation and justice. This event will be entirely nonviolent
and safe for all ages. We will pray together, sing together, hear from
international speakers and act for an end to the unjust and illegitimate
debt enslaving entire nations. All are welcome.

It is time to lift our voices and let the world know that people of faith
and conscience are still engaged and we are not satisfied!


End Corporate Rule: Global Struggles Against the IMF and World Bank
September 25-September 30, 2002
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Teach-ins, rallies and vigils are planned from September 25- September 30,
2002. Panels and workshops about issues and action will be combined with a
film festival that will culminate
in a grand event on Friday night. This will be a great time for learning
from our partners and sharing our own work for justice. Please come and
share your passion and knowledge. This event will be sponsored by Jubilee,
50 Years is Enough Network, Center for Economic Justice and Essential
Action.

These events will culminate in a large mobilization, rally and march on
Saturday the 28th of September. Please join us!


Debt is Not Done. Cancel the Debt, Now!
------------------------------------------------

Debt cancellation has proven to work in providing education, health care
and
programs to fight HIV/AIDS. We are saving lives and futures.

Yet the current debt relief plan is failing to resolve the debt crisis.
Only 6 countries have finished the World Bank and IMF designed initiative
since it started in 1996. More than twenty countries are held up due to
harmful IMF conditions. Over half of the countries in line for relief will
continue to pay more on debt than health for their citizens even after the
program!

AND countries are required to be in a current IMF loan agreement
in order to qualify for relief!

Don't let the World Bank and IMF pull the wool over our eyes with their
failed debt relief program. We need full debt cancellation now without
further delays or World Bank and IMF conditions!


Why a Vigil the US Treasury Department?
----------------------------------------------------

The United States Treasury Department directs our policy at the World Bank
and IMF. Often the United States Treasury has blocked progress on deeper
debt cancellation or changes in harmful policies. Prior to the Bank and
Fundís annual meetings, we will gather at the center of US power in these
institutions and call for jubilee debt cancellation and an end to harmful
economic policies.


We Need YOU to Make it a Success
-------------------------------------------------------------------

We need YOUR presence to make these events a success. It is your voice that
will make these events valuable!

We also critically need all kinds of volunteers from around the country to
help promote the events, organize transportation, make phone calls and plan
logistics. Unfortunately, some key tasks will be left undone without
volunteers. We
need YOU!

Please call us for more information and to learn how to get involved: Mara
at 202-783-0129, mara@j2000usa.org or Jonas at 202-783-0214,
coord@j2000usa.org

And that's all! The noiser we are the better.

Nice!!! Here's hoping you'll have plenty of company. In the meantime, why not consider writing or calling Bush? Paul O'Neill? Your Congress reps?

Bush 202 456 1414
O'Neill 202 622 0190

jubileeusa.org has more info, as does the link in my sig (sample letters you can cut and paste, other links, etc.)

Sherry--I printed out those sample letters to Bush and O'Neill from your website and I'm going to change them up later while I'm at work.

Also--I did that cool e-mail-every-important-person-in-the-world thing at the Global AIDS Alliance website. That thingy is way cool. Everyone should do it--it takes like 10 seconds.

NICE! Welcome to Cloud Bono! I'll add you right away. (Hippy, just added you too.)

I am thinking of going to Washington for the September rally. I'll look into Dream Out Loud, I haven't checked it out yet.

Let's find out how many Interferencers are planning on attending either one of these - so we can hang together!!

PM or email me if you're going or thinking of going...

Awww, shoot...

I don't believe I'll be able to make it out there then. But I'd still love to help in some way, so if there's anything else I can do to help, just let me know and I'll be happy to participate any way I possibly can.

I've been wanting to go to a protest demonstration since the G8 fiasco. I think it's really cool that protests are being set up all over. Does anyone know of anything that's going to happen in Atlanta? Sometimes a protest happens there when there are others going on and I can make those. I doubt if I can make DC. Damn! I'd love to! I'm tired of all this @%&# from the politicians.

Oh, yeah, I did that, too!

I feel good-I helped make a difference. That makes me happy.

I can't make it to Jubilee's proest. I can't recommend them enough. I think it make a lot more sense for us to support organizations arleady formed and established than "form" our own. Bono's Angels is just specifically recruiting U2 fans. I mean, Anyway....

Hey Angela! Here's what other Angels have been doing to "join" (though Bono's Angels is NOT a club because I refuse ). You can either call Bush or O'Neill or send a letter. Sample letters and phone #'s are at the sight in my signature. (Cut and paste if ithe URL aruges with you. The page is there, I promise. )

Let me know and I'll add you!

A reminder to ANYONE else reading this who sent a letter or called but hasn't told me. That's totally cool, and thanks for your committment, but I can't add ya to the Props list (props meaning Proper Respect ) if you don't let me know. PM, post here or email me.

Wow! 52 Angels!

Also, I'm cookin up something big. More late when things firm up....
