Help Needed

We need your help to make this site a reality

At present this site is only a skeleton.
It needs to be fleshed out. Your help is needed!

We need volunteers for our advisory board and editorial team

No technical skill required

The main requirement is enthusiasm for the anti-war movement
and a conviction that anti-war events, websites, organizations, resources,
leaflets, articles, criticism and debate should be available on this site.

An email list has been created for discussion of the development
and management of this web site. It can be seen at:
groups.yahoo.com/group/anti-war-website-management/

Let me hear from you

    About us

    Who we are and what this site is about

    This site is about making a reality of the slogan at the top of the page:
    Information wants to be free to serve the struggle against imperialist war!

    This means that anti-war activists must have easy and convenient access
    to anti-war events, websites, organizations, resources, leaflets, articles,
    criticism and debate.

    Currently, the editor is Ben Sai. As others join this project they will be listed here.

    An email list has been created for discussion of the development
    and management of this web site. It can be seen at:

  • SAIA-Talk-5 Medea Benjamin 30.Dec.2001 eyewitness report from Afghanistan
      A good example of how the "free press" works
    "Benjamin: Well, many of the press people we met on the ground were extremely frustrated, because they wanted to do stories about these issues, like the innocent victims, like their colleagues were doing in Europe and in the Arab and other press, but found that the stories were not wanted back in the U.S. Either they would do them and they'd never make it to the air or in print, or they were just plain out told, we don't want those stories."
