Action: Iraq – Next Steps to End the War FCNL 6/3/2007 Members of Congress have failed to respond to the public demand for a change in policy in Iraq. They are about to approve, and the president will sign, legislation providing nearly $100 billion more for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan without insisting on a change in policy. Congress has capitulated to the stubborn demands of President Bush just as they were beginning to take steps to correct the failed U.S. strategy in Iraq. But we will have another chance to end the war in the next month. The Senate will soon have an opportunity to try again to change U.S. policy in Iraq. FCNL lobbyists have learned that bipartisan legislation to require the U.S. to engage in diplomatic talks to end the war and to set a date for withdrawal of U.S. forces will be introduced and could be voted on in June as part of the military authorization bill. Your senators need to hear from you and from other people in your community that you want them to support this legislation for a date certain to withdraw and diplomacy. Take Action Tell your senators not to vote more money for war in Iraq. Urge them to insist on a new policy in Iraq (http://capwiz.com/fconl/utr/1/GCPNHEWONP/AUEOHEWQMT/1215346506), and ask two of your friends (http://capwiz.com/fconl/utr/1/GCPNHEWONP/NCRVHEWQMU/1215346506) to do the same. Urge your senators to support the Iraq Study Group Recommendations Implementation Act when it comes to a vote in the Senate. cph's blog Login or register to post comments Read more It IS up to us. The peace and justice movement comprises many different facets of humanity thirsting for positive change. Our movement is strong and growing stronger. Let us all join in the conversation to reinvigorate and reorganize the idea of peace and justice. We understand the stress that leadership entails. Perhaps we should be asking ourselves how we could each claim some of that leadership role so that an individual does not become over-burdened with such a heavy load. 2 comments Read more U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation Wed, 06/06/2007 - 12:29 — artie Start: 06/10/2007 - 00:00 End: 06/11/2007 - 23:59 Timezone: Etc/GMT On Sunday, June 10th, people from around the country will gather in Washington, DC, to protest 40 years of Israel's illegal military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.

I have endured a lot of smear and hatred since Casey was killed and especially since I became the so-called "Face" of the American anti- war movement. Especially since I renounced any tie I have remaining with the Democratic Party, I have been further trashed on such "liberal blogs" as the Democratic Underground. Being called an "attention whore" and being told "good riddance" are some of the more milder rebukes.

Memorial Day, a day of vacations and sales. Our Memorial Day is a little different since my son returned from Iraq. Last year's Memorial Day started with a parade. WWII vets dressed in their military finest, the rest of us dressed in our t-shirts, "Vets for Peace," "Military Families Speak Out," or "Iraq Vets Against the War."
