Dear list, Please pass this on to those you know in the States: Wednesday, October 9, 5 PM Protest at the Capitol Building Meet at Upper Senate Park (North of the Capitol, across Constitution Ave.) The Bush Administration wants to drag the United States into a disastrous military venture against a country that has not attacked us. They want to wage a war that could lead to the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis and many US troops. A war that would alienate people all over the world and make us more vulnerable to attacks here at home. A war that makes a mockery of international law. A war that would cost about $200 billion at a time when our schools and hospitals are starved for funds. And Congress is about to endorse this reckless effort--the vote on a war resolution could come as early as Thursday! Please join Peace Action, Global Exchange, EPIC (Education for Peace in Iraq), Black Voices for Peace, American Friends Service Committee, Washington Peace Center, Nonviolence International, DAWN (DC Anti-War Network), Code Pink, National Network to End the War Against Iraq, and many other peace and justice organizations in calling on our Senators and Representatives to resist the pressure of the Bush Administration and stand up for peace. We have a small window of opportunity to stop this war before it starts. Let us seize the moment! Bring noisemakers (whistles, pots and pans) and No War on Iraq signs!
