>P.S. Here is a text copy of the global appeal:
>A Global Appeal for 'No more violence!'
>Deeply saddened by the suffering and deaths of thousands in New York,
>Washington and Pennsylvania, we, people of many different backgrounds from
>around the world, join with millions of others to denounce these latest
>acts of terror against innocent civilians. We believe that military
>retaliation in response to this mass murder will only accelerate the cycle
>of fear, anger and violence.
>We urge our political and religious leaders to heed our appeal for
>nonviolence. We will not be swayed by calls to support further violence. We
>will respond to cries for revenge with caring, calm and reason. Violent
>retaliation and war will only lead to greater losses of life. This, in
>turn, will only serve to breed more anger, hatred and terror.
>Instead, we support the rule of international law. The perpetrators of
>these crimes, and all other crimes against humanity, crimes against peace
>and war crimes, should be brought to justice. No individual, group or
>government should have immunity from international law.
>As we mourn for those whose lives were lost on September 11, 2001, we also
>mourn for all those around the world dying from the violence inflicted by
>terrorism, war or the lack of food, medicine, water and housing.
>Pledge of Nonviolence
>Standing firmly together, we will embrace nonviolence to stop the cycle of
>violence from spiraling even further out of control. We join in solidarity
>with others around the world to build our common security through
>disarmament, dialogue and social justice -- not through violent attacks and
>military might.
