Seize the Time: Chance to Move Congress Now!


From United for Peace and Justice:

The controversy surrounding the McChrystal interview has focused new attention on the absence of a coherent strategy for Afghanistan. It also illuminates the fact that US military leaders are not intending to wind down the war any time soon.

This could end the period of Congressional sleep-walking, if we push. We need to make clear that napping through military failure, while squandering thousands of lives and billions of taxpayer dollars is unacceptable to constituents..

This is an important moment to keep calling members of the House of Representatives and to encourage friends, family and your organizations to do so as well.(Switchboard 202-224-3121)

Urge your Representative to take the following steps.
* Agree to vote NO on the $33.5 billion Supplemental for war spending.
