Our energy was temporarily distracted last nite and this morning from our work ending war - we have chosen to focus our energy to help care for an emotionally-challenged womon who recently joined CodePINK and has come to D.C.
Still several wimmin – not enough – were able to attend hearings on the escalation in Iraq, which shockingly, Joe Lieberman appears to be supporting.
It seems unconscionable – again & again over these past few years – to have to convince ANYONE, let alone Democrats, that we will NOT tolerate any escalation of the occupation of Iraq – but please call (202) 224-4041 Voice, (202) 224-9750 Fax and tell him so. Call everyone and tell them.
Better yet, go to your Congressperson’s Office and hold a “Peace-In” – get your Congressperson to commit to voting NO MORE FUNDS for continuing war in Iraq; ask them to make a public statement saying they will vote ONLY for funds returning our soldiers promptly and safely. Ask them to sign on to HR508!
Do your Peace-In until they sign on!
We have our work cut out for us here in D.C., but we will not, must not be distracted. We cannot argue about escalation, about Iran, about Gay Marriage or Women's Rights; we must focus all our energy on ending this war NOW, bringing our troops home NOW.
If we don't end war NOW, we will not have to worry about our rights - we will not have a world.
