Veterans:Call in to Congress

Throughout the week of March 5 - 12, national peace and justice organizations will be mobilizing phone calls to congress to stop the passage of the supplemental $93 billion!

On March 8th, join Veterans For Peace, IVAW, Military Families Speak Out, Gold Star Families for Peace, and Democracy Rising as we flood Congress with calls telling them to stop funding this war!

Every day, the Democratic Leadership gets closer to ending this war! And you have made that happen! With our feet, we marched in Washington DC and will march on the Pentagon next weekend. With our actions, we have occupied Congressional offices from to California. Now it's time to use our voices as we flood Congress with calls that scream, "NO NEW FUNDS FOR WAR - BRING OUR TROOPS HOME NOW!"

Congress is close to voting on the supplemental funding for the continuation of the war and occupation of Iraq and it is important for Congress to hear from veterans and their families.

WE know that ending funding for this war does not mean that we are stopping funding for our troops. We know the best way to support the troops is to bring them home NOW and take care of them when they get here.

can you help me.
i want to organize a national vets march on congress and wallstreet in 09.

my webpage will explain.

i am sending this message out to as many vets orgs as i can find

i know it's a big undertaking but i figure as many vets as there are we can pull this off with honor, valor and respect. even if we just show up it'll change things. or we will know for sure the reason for america is at long last lost on the world. i for one think most of america has been waiting too long for this and will stand behind us.
