Stopping the Iraq Occuaption
Stopping the Iraq Occupation and the Attack on Iran PDA works inside the Democratic Party and on Capital Hill -- and outside in grassroots movements for peace and social justice. Thanks to our outside grassroots mobilizing, more lawmakers inside Congress are signing the Iraq Peace Pledge, telling President Bush that they'll only fund the U.S. military in Iraq for "the protection and safe redeployment of all our troops out of Iraq."
70 members of Congress signed the original letter in July; the number of signers is now 86 and growing.
With organizations from the National Organization for Women (NOW) to Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) recently sending out alerts to their base, the grassroots petition backing the Iraq Peace Pledge has now been signed by 50,000 people. If you haven't signed it yet, feel free to do so now. Please forward this email to five friends. And tell your own Congressmember and Speaker Pelosi to back the Iraq Peace Pledge.
As neoconservatives in the White House threaten to widen the Iraq war disaster into a far bigger disaster by attacking Iran, PDA chapters across the country need to gear up for the National Peace Mobilization on October 27 in 11 cities: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Seattle and Jonesborough, TN.
PDA needs to have a visible presence at the Oct. 27 events, which are being organized by the United for Peace & Justice coalition. "Fall Out Against the War!" is the rallying cry. PDA needs to show our colors.
