[haw-info] HAW Notes, including links to recent articles of interest

To members and friends of Historians Against the War,

Here
are a couple of notes, followed by our intended-to-be biweekly set of links to recent articles of interest.

1.  The informative and daily-updated Web site antiwar.com, sponsored by the libertarian Randolph Bourne Institute, is trying to meet a just-announced $30,000 challenge grant, with a December 2 deadline; details are on the site's home page, http://www.antiwar.com.

2.  The Agent Orange Action Group has called for protests at Montanto Chemical's January 24 annual meeting in suburban St. Louis.  For details contact Len Aldis at lenaoag@gmail.com.
