Protest Against a Threatened War On Iran

Please join the No War On Iran Coalition in an unconventional protest action on Monday, July 21 – a Freeze-In. Assemble at 5:30 PM at Chicago's Millennium Park (Michigan Ave. & Monroe Street).

Monday's event is modeled after an action conducted in New York City's Grand Central Station last anniversary of the war. Participants enter a busy public space in a random manner. Then, at a predetermined moment, they freeze in place for 5 minutes.

This creates a weird tableau which gathers attention. Some participants will be wearing Iran Coalition T-shirts, which will lead viewers to understand the reason for the scene they were witnessing. After a couple minutes individuals not "freezing" will begin handing out leaflets.

Anyone interested in taking part should contact Tony Shafton at ashafton@aol.com or (219) 939-2050.
