Hello PJW supporters

After a long and fruitful discussion, the organizers of the mobilization 
against the (possible/ ongoing economic) wars in Iran and Venezuela agreed 
to move the date from Saturday July 20 to Sunday, July 28. Please make a 
note of it. As a result, the current calendar listing (below) and poster 
say "location TBA," we hope to have that resolved by Tuesday. If you have 
spread the word already please be sure to use THIS, the most current and 
accurate information.

We now have 23 groups on board. We also have hammered out a list of points 
by consensus of the planning meeting, which are listed with the groups' 
names below. We are still welcoming groups to be cosponsors ($25-50 
sliding scale) and endorsers (just say you support the event) who will 
help get the word out and build this to be a meaningful event.

BUT ALSO, if you want to contribute toward the event as an individual, 
please send a check to PJW and indicate "July 28 mobilization" in the memo 
field (or donate on line with that notation).

As I wrote before-- watch out for those "bombs bursting in air" tonight 
celebrating war, also known as fireworks.

     There will be a march and rally on Sunday, July 28 primarily focusing

     event organizers are:
