For Immediate Release
Peace of the Action's 'Camp OUT NOW' Comes to Washington, DC
Civil Resistance to War and Empire Planned in Nation's Capitol
NATIONWIDE - Enough is enough! It's time we up the ante and demand that our
voices be heard and heeded. It's time that the logical and rational
voices of reason get a Peace of the Action.
While the wars in Central Asia and the Middle East rage hotter and
hotter, and while the suppression of our civil liberties here in the
U.S. continue, Peace of the Action is demanding an immediate cessation
to U.S. hostilities.
Peace of the Action will be establishing Camp OUT NOW on the lawn of
the Washington Monument (with or without governmental permission) on
Saturday, March 13th, (exactly 23 days from today), to be a base of
operations from which we will organize and direct daily acts of Civil
Resistance throughout the DC area and until our demands are officially
The first week of Camp OUT NOW, we will be holding non-violent Civil
Resistance training, hosting Peace notables and being invigorated by
musicians as we start building the community that we are going to need
in order to help each other through the planned sustained actions.
All persons, who have had enough of "business as usual" in DC and
are willing to put our anti-war, pro humanity principles into practice,
are invited to come out to Camp OUT NOW and stay with us for as little
or as long as you have available.
Direct acts of non-violent Civil Resistance will begin Monday, March
22nd after we have joined ANSWER Coalition in its "March on Washington"
on Saturday, March 20th.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
