STEELERS FANS AGAINST THE WAR KICKS OFF JANUARY 15TH

Press Conference at 2:30pm

Contact: Etta Cetera 412- 802-8575

Steelers Fans Against the War (SFAW) will be hosting a
press conference and rally in favor of the Steelers
stellar 15 and 1 season but against George Bushes’
unjust and unsportsmanlike conduct against Iraq. We
think it’s great to see today’s Iron Curtain keep the
Jets out of their endzone, but sheesh, sure is
embarrassing when they sack the Iron City Beer dudes.
Just as we don’t want to see the Steelers sack people
on the sidelines we certainly don’t want to see the
president rushing into war against the wrong enemy.
Osama Bin Laden is NOT the quarterback of Iraq. Iraq
and Al Quaeda are two different teams. We charge
George Bush not only with an illegal use of arms but
an illegal use of arms against the wrong team. We
would expect such tactics from a team like the
Cleveland Browns but not by someone who is supposed to
be the leader of the United States. We also charge the
U.S. government with unnecessary roughness on the
grounds that no weapons of mass destruction were ever
found. Iraq never had the ball and since the sanctions
they haven’t even had the pigs to make a pigskin. On
the other hand, George Bush has been lobbing long
bombs all over the Middle East ever since the second
invasion of Iraq. But he ain’t in Heinz field he’s in
left field in PNC Park hitting foul balls. If you
want to challenge these calls we will show you the
instant replays.

When the SFAW marched against the war on January 20th,
2002, we said “Make Touchdowns NOT War” and “YARDLINES
NOT FRONT LINES” and we will continue to raise our
voice in protest this Saturday. Even after the U.S.
Government claims to have already sacked Iraq’s
quarterback, Saddam Hussein, Bush continues the
Blitz. George Bush’s encroachment has cost the lives
of 100,000 Iraqi’s and the lives of 1,313 U.S.
soldiers. The number of people that have died because
of this war would fill up Heinz Stadium one and ½
times. Not to mention, the U.S. disabled list bares
10,000 names and the number is rising. .

We call TIME OUT to rethink this war. The United
States is off sides and out of bounds. The penalties
committed by the U.S. government are costing more than
a few yards, they are costing lives. We are running
out of TIME OUTS.

SFAW will stand with our WAR IS TERRIBLE towels in
solidarity with people across the country that are
demanding no more war games.
UP WITH THE SUPERBOWL! DOWN WITH THE DEATH TOLL!
GO STEELERS.

If for some reason the armed referees move us from the
front of the great hall gate, just look for people
waving war is terrible towels or listen for the
marching band.

ANY INDY MEDIA PEOPLE WHO WOULD LIKE TO DOCUMENT THIS
EVENT, YOUR HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
