New Anti-War Ad Campaign Launched


Go to Velvet Revolution's Ad Campaign.

Go to RAWSTORY.com's article about it.

From Velvet Revolution:

VR today launched a long-term advertisement and awareness campaign to galvanize American citizens into taking their country back from those who believe that they are untouchable and unaccountable. This campaign will graphically show that those in power have lost touch with real people through a pattern of lies, corruption, fear mongering, incompetence, indifference and arrogance.

The first ad will appear today as a full two-page spread in the Crawford, Texas Iconoclast newspaper and will be delivered to the President's ranch during his long five-week vacation. Cindy Sheehan and hundreds of others opposed to Iraq war are protesting nearby and they will all be given free copies of the paper. VR supports Cindy and her cause, and she was interviewed on June 18th by VR founder Brad Friedman on the BradShow. Cindy's son Casey was killed five days after arriving in Iraq in what the President calls a "noble cause." Now, however, in light of the Downing Street Memos, the world knows that the war was based on lies and deception.

Today's ad says: DON'T LOOK FOR THESE NAMES AMONG THE DEAD AND WOUNDED, and lists on Dog Tags the names of Jenna Bush, David Wolfowitz, Elizabeth Cheney, Valerie Rumsfeld, along with their religious affiliation. Below it says, "Our children have to die so Chicken Hawk children can stay home and get richer? Take back the White House for Americans who know the value of human life. Come to www.VelvetRevolution.us."

VR will place other hard-hitting ads throughout the country and on the Internet to raise awareness about:

the Iraq war based on lies,
the Downing Street Memos,
the rigged election of 2004,
the failure to heed pre-911 warnings,
corrupt vote machine companies,
war profiteering,
torture as a policy,
illegal outing of intelligence officials
the corrupt Iraq election.

These ads will appear in newspapers, magazines, billboards, transit shelters, bus and rail cars, and on dozens of web sites in order to reach the most people.

Please donate here because your donations will determine how many of these ads can run. VR wants to have continuous ads in hundreds of venues over the next 18 months. Avenging Angels Inc. will create all of the ads.
