THIS LETTER FROM ACTIVISTS HELPED MAKE THIS HAPPEN:

May 4, 2006
TO: Foreign Policy LA
RE: Please sign on to Rep. DeFazio’s letter to President Bush regarding the War Powers Act and Iran by 6:00 PM today.

The below 12 organizations, representing diverse communities and foreign policy expertise, believe that Iran is, at the earliest, several years away from developing a nuclear weapon, that direct diplomacy needs to occur and that the U.S. should be clear that it will not use nuclear weapons on Iran.

That said, should the Bush or any Administration decide it must use force as a last resort, we want to remind the Administration that U.S. Constitution grants Congress this power.

We urge your Representative to sign the pasted and attached letter to the President from Representative DeFazio. If they have already done so, we would like to thank them.

48 current signatories include:

Reps. Paul, Schakowsky, Abercrombie, Honda, Baldwin, Millender-McDonald, Jackson-Lee, George Miller, Lee, Sanders, Sherrod Brown, Doggett, McGovern, McCollum, McDermott, Blumenauer, Serrano, Inslee, John Lewis, Payne, Kucinich, Conyers, Watson, Holt, Stark, Nadler, Kaptur, Bobby Scott, Allen, Wu, Waters, Slaughter, Farr, Hinchey, DeLauro, Pascrell, Gutierrez, Mike Thompson, Napolitano, Timothy Bishop, Boswell, Hooley, Filner, Woolsey, Maloney, Kilpatrick, Fattah and Larson.

For your boss to sign, please contact Mr. Vinson below by 6:00 PM, Tuesday, May 2

Tom Vinson
