the Over My Dead Body project
29 May 2003
FOR peace
FOR the wellbeing of all
FOR the environment
FOR the politics of generosity

  On the 6th June, an important ceremony will be held on the beaches of Normandy, France, to commemorate D-Day, the landing of allied troops in 1944, come to liberate France and Europe from Nazi occupation. Many world leaders will be present, including George Bush. Bush (whose family made a fortune doing business with the Nazis), does not represent that America which fought for freedom, but a sombre America, arrogant and imperialist.
Bush must not be allowed to steal the memory of those Americans who crossed the waters to save Europe, many of whom never returned home.

The STATE OF THINGS is an evolving portrait of the world today, of our dispair and our hope, of our obstacles and our triumphs. It is regularly updated, and is displayed in the form of a newswire in the lower part of the Over My Dead Body project's screen.

This newsletter is an excerpt of current, urgent news from the STATE OF THINGS. Please forward this newsletter to anyone whom you think may be interested by its contents...


The Over My Dead Body project is a world wide, online, virtual demonstration, politicising the major themes of globalisation and the economy, the environment, antiracism, gender issues, etc. The federating platform is the promotion of "the politics of generosity" to unblock the stranglehold of financial and imperialist self-interest upon the world's destiny. It is evident that the war against Iraq enters within a definition of corporate imperialism: thus protest against the war and its aftermath is part of the project's agenda...

People are invited to participate, and are represented symbolically in the demonstration by their name, place of residence, and if they so wish, photo, and virtual placard. Thus people from the four corners of the globe may march together, and in this way the demo is a powerful and active metaphor for fraternity. Take a moment to watch people pass by, seeing where they come from and what they say.

If you have not joined the demo yet, you are cordially invited to join us! Please forward this message to your family, your friends, your colleagues, your mailing list... If you can, make a link to the Over My Dead Body project! The presence of each person is important: a trickle becomes a torrent that becomes a tidal wave, rolling for change.
