My LTTE to the NY Times re: the UAE ports deal

My LTTE to the NY Times re: the UAE ports deal

Edited on Thu Feb-23-06 03:05 PM by brooklynite
Democratic Underground

I would like to join David Brook's plea for an end to the xenophobic anti-Arab reactions to the Dubai ports deal being made by our politicians and pundits ("Kicking Arabs in the Teeth", Feb 23). But, in doing so, I have to wonder where his concern has been for the past four years. Ever since 9/11, the Administration and its supporters, who pride themselves on "controlling the message", have apparently been happy to let firebrands like Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Rev. Pat Robertson stir up the conservative base in support of the Administration's war and security policies with anti-muslim and anti-Arab rhetoric that garners at most an occasional "tut, tut" when the oratory goes too far. Now that a business deal with the Arab world is pending, its not surprising that the angry emotional responses can't be curtailed. Perhaps a call for less teeth kicking would have been more productive at the start of our "War on Terror", rather than at this late date.

Spreading & Deepening the Movement to Drive Out the Bush Regime

From the National Steering Committee of World Can't Wait, 2/21

When the President used the State of the Union address January 31 to relentlessly push his case for unending war on the world, unimpeded domestic spying, faith-based initiatives and an attack on stem cell research and abortion, some reported this as a "moderate speech with no new proposals." But there was a different response in the streets of more than 60 cities, when tens of thousands perceived Bush’s address as a State of Emergency. Then, Saturday, over two thousand came right to the White House to demand "Bush Step Down and Take Your Program with You!"

Strategy for meeting with Congresspeople on impeachment

Work with the campaign office
By Carol Wolman,

Congresspeople have two offices, a congressional office, which handles their current business, and a campaign office, which handles their upcoming election, which occurs every two years. Staying in Congress is a prime goal, as committee assignments and power depend on seniority,- the number of times the person is re-elected. Therefore, the campaign office is ongoing. Often the same staff covers both offices locally.

Why Peace Organizations Should Work for the Impeachment of Bush and Cheney

By David Swanson

1.-Impeachment is where people's energy is, all over the country. If we want a large and growing and democratic movement, we should listen to our members.

2.-Exposing the lies and the crimes related to this war is, more than anything else, building opposition to the war, as well as to future wars. There is no better way to expose the crimes than to demand an investigation that could lead to impeachment. (As demanded by H Res 635.)

Road to Peace Goes Through Santa Cruz

By David Swanson

The following are remarks I made last Wednesday night in Santa Cruz, California, at an event held in the Veterans Hall, where the star speaker was Medea Benjamin, and where a group of Raging Grannies with pink aprons and rolling pins belted out anti-Bush songs of their own creation that brought down the house. Medea was tremendous, and I recommend watching the video once they get it online.

Nine Ways to Take Action on Third Anniversary of War

Have you made plans yet to mark the third anniversary of the Iraq War?

From time to time, our movement gathers in mass mobilizations (as we will on April 29 in New York City). As dramatic and inspiring as those events are, the heart and soul of the peace movement is community-based, local work, which is why United for Peace and Justice has called for nationally coordinated local actions on the third anniversary of the Iraq War.
