Week-long clinic defense in the deep South this summer!

Operation Save America (formerly Operation Rescue) has put out a call for a week-long siege on the last abortion-providing clinic in Jackson, Mississippi from July 15-22, 2006. Their message is being spread far and wide and we are planning a massive clinic defense demonstration to keep the clinic open.
Hello Friends and Allies,

Operation Save America (formerly Operation Rescue) has put out a call for a siege on the last abortion-providing clinic in Jackson, Mississippi this summer. (See jackson.operationsaveamerica.org/indexVideo.asp for more information on their plans.) Their message is being spread far and wide and we are planning a massive clinic defense demonstration to keep the clinic open. July 15-22, 2006 is the proposed siege week.

In order to sustain a week's worth of clinic defense we are in need of a variety of support and especially people to participate in the counter-action. Currently, members of abortion funds across the south are planning for a caravan to Jackson and we need your help! If you are interested in participating in the caravan or would like to be a fiscal sponsor of the caravan and clinic defense, please contact us as soon as possible!

Also, we are in desperate need of items like water bottles and food for the persons who will be convening in Jackson as well as housing opportunities for the activists. We are also raising money to raise awareness with buttons, stickers, t-shirts, and other items. Any letters to the editor that you send regarding this event would be helpful or any other publicity for that matter. We are hoping for a big turn out to let the rest of the south know that we are in this together. For more information or to find out how to donate contact the Southern Abortion Fund at southernabfund (at) nnaf.org or the Jackson area NOW chapter at jxnms_now (at) yahoo.com.

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you in Jackson.
