Prepared for war, Pittsburgh won't take it without a fight. Activists at the University of Pittsburgh and other area colleges are planning a student strike for the day after bombing begins, while students at Indiana University of Pennsylvania plan a walkout. The Thomas Merton Center's Anti-War Committee is planning a vigil and civil disobedience at the Federal Building for 5:00 PM on the day after bombing starts.
Across the world, activists are mobilizing to prevent the war, but also to respond if one begins. In San Francisco, activists promise to shut down the city if the war on Iraq escalates.
