Philadelphia City Council Votes Resolution Against The War


On the urging of members and friends of the Bring Them Home Now Bus Tour, the Philadelphia City Council voted today 16 to 1 for a Resolution calling on the federal government to "rapidly withdraw US troops from Iraq expeditiously." Following a Thursday morning caucus session in which Gold Star Mom Celeste Zappala and other Bring Them Home Now Bus Tour members were introduced to Councilmembers, the Resolution was introduced by Councilwomen Blondell Reynolds-Brown and was co-sponsored by 12 other council persons, two of them Republicans. Councilwoman Reynolds-Brown will read the resolution at the Rally scheduled for Friday 9/16 from 5 to 7 PM at Indepenedence Mall, 5th & Market Sts.

After these resolutions are voted for, what happens to them? Are they just a formality or are they presented to the (P)resident and congress?
