Do you want peace? Can our greedy weapons manufacturers handle peace? Whatever they believe, we owe it to ourselves, and to our progeny to give peace a chance! The group "WarIsACrime.org urges you to contact your Congressman (or Woman), to give peace a chance. The chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, David Obey, can single-handedly block funding to escalate the war in Afghanistan, and he is currently doing so by refusing to advance it unless schools and jobs are funded. Call him every day to thank him and ask him to reject war escalation funding even if jobs and teachers are funded. His phone number is (202)225-3365. Now is the moment, if you care about peace, to speak up for it in public, in the media, in the local office of your congressional representative. Your House member can be pressured to vote NO, especially if you make it crystal clear that otherwise you will work to un-elect him (or her).
Do it NOW, before our arms manufacturers put their greedy hands even deeper into your pocket!
