If you oppose a war with Iraq, I urge you to check out "The Lysistrata Project, an Act of Theatrical Decent." On 3 March 2003, concerned citizens around the world will congregate for a night of theater and discussion.

A brief discussion of the play, from their website:

Lysistrata, a comedy by Greek dramatist Aristophanes (c. 447 - c. 385 b.c.e.), tells the story of a group of women from opposing states who unite to end the Peloponnesian War.

After matronly stormtroopers take over the building where public funds are kept, the women rise to end the war by withholding sex from their mates -- Until, desperate for intimacy, the men finally agree to lay down their swords and see their way to achieving diplomatic peace.

If you are uncertain of your feelings on the pending war, or even if you support the war, at least read 10 Reasons To Oppose The War With Iraq.
You can hear more about The Lysistrata Project at NPR.
