Peace Activists Urge Military Restraint

In response to the September 11th terrorist attacks, peace activists from around the United States are organizing demonstrations and teach-ins around the country to urge President Bush to “show restraint” in the use of military power against Osama bin Laden and others suspected to be involved in the New York City and Washington DC tragedies. Students groups are planning activities on 105 campuses in 30 states to argue for an end to the “cycle of violence” and the strengthening of international tribunals to bring terrorists and human rights violators to justice. At a speech before the U.N. yesterday, CNN founder Ted Turner reminded many that, while some point the finger at so-called foreign terrorists, Americans saw terrorism in the U.S. just a few years ago when Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh bombed a federal building in Oklahoma City.
