A successful [article]weekend of action on January 24th-26th saw thousands gather in Pittsburgh to voice their opposition to the war. Post-convergence [article]discussion is ongoing in our newswire. But now, as the government ramps up its propaganda machine and war seems even more inevitable, many activists ask "[article]what's next."

Many plan to attend what promises to be one of the [article]largest demonstrations in NYC on [article]February 15th, but local actions are also being considered. In March, the Pittsburgh Organizing Group hopes to hold an [article]anti-war rally in Pittsburgh. A group of local college students plan a [article]teach-in on the day after bombing begins, with others mentioning a [article]student strike. Students at nearby Westminster College have planned a [article]demonstration for February 22nd. And according to the minutes of the Pittsburgh Anti-War Committee, some local residents, energized by the [article]growing list of cities that have passed anti-war resolutions, hope to get one passed here as well.
