Democracy is rising

For citizens of the USA, this is an important day in the battle to derail the neo-con war juggernaut.
Over to Carol Kramer:

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD TODAY!

This week the U.S. House of Representatives debated President Bush’s plan to
send 21,000 more troops into the war in Iraq. Today they vote on the resolution
opposing the increase of troops.

Please call your Representative TODAY. This is a critical time in our movement
to end the war. More is needed to make the U.S. secure in the world.

Ask your Representative to take these three steps:

1. Vote YES on the non-binding resolution to oppose escalation of the war in
Iraq – but don’t stop there.

2. Take a real step forward for peace: Vote NO on the war supplemental
appropriations bill and stop funding the war in Iraq.

3. DO NOT escalate the war into Iran.


Here’s how to do it.

-- Call the Capitol switchboard (202)224-3121 and ask to be connected to your
Representative's office, or go to http://capwiz.com/fconl/directory/congdir.tt
to find the direct phone number of your Representative.

-- Ask to speak to your Representative’s aide responsible for Iraq War issues.

-- Identify yourself and ask your Representative to take the three steps listed
above.

-- Ask the office to send you a transcript of the Representative’s floor speech
on Iraq (all members have been given 5 minutes to make a statement on Iraq this
week).


Today's vote on the escalation of the war is a step forward, but it’s just the
first step. Non-binding resolutions aren’t enough. Congress must use its power
to end the war and bring the troops home now!
