CODEPINK: What you can do to STOP the NEXT WAR NOW!

What you can do to STOP the NEXT WAR NOW!
September 26, 2007
Dear james m,
 
This week, everyone is buzzing about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit to New York. CODEPINK was outside both his talk at Columbia and his address to the UN General Assembly. While we don’t agree with many of the things he said, we want to remind everyone that Ahmadinejad, doesn’t represent the Iranian people just as President Bush doesn’t represent us. So what do we as citizens do when our leadership fails us so miserably? We rise up. We take action. We show that citizen diplomacy can be the voice of reason that forces leaders to talk to each other and prevent war.
 
CODEPINK has created a Prevent War with Iran page filled with simple, effective actions you can do to help stop the next war now. We are highlighting two of those actions this week:
 
 
Download our No War With Iran sign and place it in your window at home and work, or carry it out on the street, to remind people that we have the power to prevent this war.
 
Write a Letter to the Editor, using our sample letter or your own heart-felt message, to make your desire for peace heard in a public forum.
 
We also urge you to call your Reps early and often (House and Senate, 202 224 3121) and tell them to vote NO on bombing Iran. There is some scary legislation on the table (especially the Kyl-Lieberman amendment) that could lead to an imminent attack; we need to quash it immediately.
 
Other actions on our Iran page include getting your town to pass a resolution encouraging diplomacy, not war, with Iran; inviting someone from our speakers bureau to speak about Iran in your community; going on a citizens’ diplomacy trip to Iran; and signing our petitions to Congress and the UN Security Council.
 
Whichever actions you choose to take, be sure to educate yourself with Phyllis Bennis’ talking points about why we shouldn’t attack Iran. The more we understand the issue, the more we’ll be able to reach people, to change minds and prevent war.
 
Thank you for helping us Stop the Next War Now!
 
With ever-renewed determination and hope,
Dana, Desiree, Farida, Gael, Gayle, Jodie, Karin, Liz, Medea, Nancy, Pamela, Patricia, Rae, Samantha, and Vanessa
 
P.S. Be a walking billboard for peace by wearing our Stop the Next War Now shirts, available in unisex tees and sheer jersey cap sleeves. And to learn even more strategies for how to prevent future conflict, order our book Stop the Next War Now.

About reality

Also, thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them. Also, since Admin. of change.org aren't allowing me to invite people to do my actions lately and are switching my urls for my petitions so when I invite people off their site they can't get to the petition either (ergo 3 possible urls for each petition), here's a few of my latest actions; do as few or as many as you'd like (there are 3 linx for each petition because admin. switches between the 3 of them so people trying to sign the petition can‘t get to it): This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Haiti disaster anniversary, please, do what you can: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9033 This petition on change.org: Haiti disaster anniversary: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2?share_id=yIpWHEHxri&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2 http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Green, Indigenous, Native American, etc., actions: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9026 This petition on change.org: Green, Indigenous, Native American, acts: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous_native_american_acts?share_id=NHvTtQadfP&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, holiday: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9024 This petition on change.org: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. M.L.
