Some highlights:


Cindy welcomed participants and opened with ideology of a Women led movement to end wars an women, their families, and communities are most detrimentally affected by war and other violent oppression by the empire and patriarchy.

Co-coordinator Bonnie Caracciolo welcomed participants and also gave an impassioned critique of how the Pentagon also destroys the environment.

Emma Fiala (Steering Committee Member and Website designer) gave an update on the website and how members can interact with it.

We had many good questions and comments from participants and one made a great suggestion to have a page that backs up our claim that women are most affected by war. Suggestion taken up and being implemented.

There were committee and volunteer opportunities presented.

An Occupy the Pentagon (From Oct 21 to Veteran's Day) civil resistance plan from the Steering Committee was presented.

Jessica from F.U.R.I.E (Feminist Uprising to Resist Inequality and Exploitation) in Chicago gave a brief report on how their org will support the March and asked if scholarships for travel will be offered. It's the opinion of the Steering Committee that any woman who wants to attend the March in DC should be able to and we hope we can raise the funds for this.

Also, solidarity marches/protests were encouraged if people cannot make it to DC for those days.

Cindy Sheehan reiterated the non-partisan nature of the protest against the bi-partisan war machine.

Walter (a member of the Advisory Committee and participant in the first March on the Pentagon in 1967), gave a great comment that we should emphasize that we are fighting Imperialism, not just particular wars.

Ali Mirza (chair of the PR Committee) finished up and will be designing a PR strategy for the March with his committee.

Cindy thanked the participants and ended the call.
