    In a "major step" toward ending the crisis with Iraq and forestalling a U.S. military strike, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan signed a written agreement from Iraq to give weapons inspectors unlimited access to Sadaam Hussein’s presidential palaces. Annan withheld details of the accord until he could return and present it to the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday.

  • International Protests

    This weekend there were protests around the world against the impending bombing of Iraq. In London, more than 2000 attended anti war demonstrations. In Italy, there were demonstrations in 10 cities.

  • War Tax Resistors

    Every member of the current Voices in the Wilderness delegation to Iraq is a war tax resister. If the US strikes Iraq, they will put out a national call for US citizens not to pay taxes. War tax resistance runs the gamut from not paying the federal tax on your phone bill, which was established as a war tax during the Viet Nam war, to not paying your income taxes and using the money saved to support peace groups.
