Anti-War Activists Stage Massive "Die-In" at Rockefeller Center;
Smaller Groups Throughout City Act to Disrupt "Business As Usual"
 
NEW YORK - March 25 - On Thursday, March 27th at 8am, an ad-hoc coalition of hundreds of activists from over 35 community, student, religious and labor organizations will "die-in" at Rockefeller Center to protest the ongoing war on Iraq. Activists chose Rockefeller Center as the location for this act of non-violent, civil disobedience in order to draw attention to the media's often biased and one-sided reporting on the conflict, and to protest corporate profiteering from the war.

What: Non-violent, mass civil disobedience in the form of a die-in and smaller coordinated actions throughout the city aimed at disrupting business as usual.

Where: Rockefeller Center: 50th Street and 5th Avenue

When: Thursday, March 27 at 8AM.

Who: A broad, ad-hoc coalition of over 35 anti-war organizations. For more information see http://www.m27coalition.org/.
